An elderly farmer, aged in his 90’s, has died after he was attacked by a cow late last night.
The incident occurred on a farm in the Sevensisters area near Johnstown in the county, as confirmed to us by local Gardaí. He died as a result of the injuries he suffered after one of his cows attacked him.
It is thought, that the farmer was looking after a newborn calf when the incident occurred at approximately 9pm. There have been suggestions, that this may have been what provoked the cow to attack.
The incident is currently under investigation by an Garda Síochána as well as the HSA.
