Teen Dies In Tipperary Farming Accident

A 15-year-old male teenager has tragically lost his life in yet another farming accident here in North Tipperary.

The tragedy occurred on a farm in the Newtown, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary area yesterday afternoon (Sunday), shortly before 6.00pm.

We understand that the boy, named locally as Master Patrick McCormack of Ryninch Ballina, a Junior Cert student in St Anne’s Community College, Killaloe, was thrown from the back of a tractor, while working on his uncle’s farm near Bulaglass, in Newtown Nenagh.

Gardaí and the Health and Safety Authority are investigating the incident.

Tributes have been paid to the popular teenager; together with condolences being offered to his family, in a post by his local GAA club in Ballina.

Taken far too soon.
