Tragic Accident In Clonoulty Tipperary

Residents in the nearby village of Clonoulty, Thurles, Co Tipperary are said to be in deep shock following news of the death of a local man in what is described locally as a tragic accident.

The accident happened shortly after 8.00am this morning and the road between Clonoulty and Ballagh has been closed, as Gardai carry out a technical examination of the scene.

The deceased is believed to be aged in his early 50′s, married with two school going children. The accident is understood to have happened when the victim was struck by an oil truck which he was driving and which rolled forward causing fatal injuries, as he tried to open or close an entrance gate.

The identity of the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, is known to locals but has not yet been officially released, until family members have been notified. His body has now been removed to South Tipperary General Hospital in Clonmel, Tipperary, where a post mortem is expected to be carried out later today.
