The close-knit communities of Kilcar and Carrick are in deep shock after tragedy struck for the second time in the last fortnight.

John Campbell Jnr. (28) of Castlecarn, Kilcar (pictured) tragically lost his life on Tuesday night after a car that he was repairing collapsed on him. Efforts were made to resuscitate him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Less than two weeks ago, 38-year-old Jamesie Maloney from nearby Teelin passed away in Perth, Australia after spending Christmas at home with his family.

Both men will be laid to rest at 12 noon tomorrow, Friday, within miles of each other in Kilcar and Carrick.

The father of three young children, John Campbell, was married to Noelle and was the son of current Finn Harps secretary, John, and Helena Campbell.
