The funeral of Noel Hayes took place this afternoon from his home in Waringstown to Lurgan Cemetery.

The cortège passed along Pollock Drive and paused to make a short stop outside Mourneview Park.

A sizeable crowd including club directors, ex directors, team management, players, back room staff, supporters and sponsors lined the footpaths to pay their final respects to a true gentlemen who had devoted so much of his life to local football and his beloved Glenavon.

May Noel rest in peace.
