Tipperary Male Dead Following Farm Tragedy

A 47 year old male has tragically lost his life, following a farm accident here in Co. Tipperary, early this morning.

We understand that the accident occurred on a pig farm close to Rathcabbin, Borrisokane, in the North of the county.

The Health and Safety Authority have confirmed that they are investigating the incident, with two of their inspectors presently on site.

Gardaí in Borrisokane were called to the incident at approximately 8.30am this morning, and we understand the man was working with a digger. Gardaí have now confirmed this accident, without disclosing the exact circumstances surrounding the death; only to state that the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The above tragedy comes following a number of other farm fatalities nationally over the summer months. Back in July a man in his 90’s lost his life on his Kerry farm, while also in July, a 54 year-old woman, tending to cattle in a field, was killed in a farm accident in Co. Galway.
