It is believed a car he was working on collapsed on top of him in the townland of Glencovitt, not far from the local national school.

The man, a farner who has a grown-up family and is a cancer surviv0r, was discovered by his son who was working nearby.


Gardai and the emergency services rushed to the scene, however, he was pronounced dead a short-time later.

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has been informed about the incident and the scene remains sealed off.
