That function has a continuous derivative at the break point, by the way:

poly = Evaluate[First[eq] /. q -> #1] & ;
divide = (5*(-109199 + 1497*Sqrt[5489]))/2744;
delta = 0.00001;
D[Root[poly, 3], c] /. c -> N[divide]
D[Root[poly, 3], c] /. c -> divide - delta
D[Root[poly, 1], c] /. c -> divide + delta

0.334584
0.334585
0.334583

Plot[{qroot@c}, {c, divide - .1, divide + .1}]
