Yesterday the farming world mourned the death of a Wicklow farmer, in a roof related accident.
The man was named as farmer John Donnelly, who was aged in his 70’s. He is understood to have died after he fell from a ladder while clearing leaves from a gutter. It is thought that a gate blew into the ladder, causing him to fall.
The accident occurred at his house in Kilmurray in the Kilmacanogue area of the county. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.His local community are said to be in shock at the loss of the popular farmer.
Our thoughts and sympathies go out to the Donnelly family.
