Tipperary Man Dies Following Hit & Run

An investigation is currently under way following the discovery of the body of a 68-year-old local man, who, it is suspected, died following a hit-and-run road incident here in Co. Tipperary last night, Sunday.

The incident happened in the townsland of Poynestown, near the village of Glengoole, about 14 km (8.5 mls) from Thurles town at around 10.20pm.

Gardaí believe that the, as yet not publicly named pedestrian, was struck by a vehicle, which apparently failed to stop at the scene.

The road remains closed between the villages of Ballysloe and Glengoole, while a technical examination takes place, however local diversions have been put in place.

Thurles Gardaí have appealed for witnesses to contact Thurles Garda Station on Tel: 0504 25100, or the Garda Confidential Line on Tel: 1800 666 111 or indeed any Garda Station.
