Elderly man dies in Cork-Limerick border farm accident

An elderly man has died following a farming accident on the Cork-Limerick border.

The tragic incident took place at a dairy farm in Kilbehenny, which straddles the two counties.

Differing reports indicate that the man was either working with machinery or a mechanical gate at around 4pm on Thursday when he suffered crush injuries.

He was declared dead at the scene.

The man’s passing is the latest in a number of recent deaths in the farming community in Ireland.

Earlier this month, dad-of-two M.J. Malone died after a farming incident in the Ballycarney area of Wexford.

And another elderly man died in Carrigaline, Co Cork last month following an incident involving a tractor.
