Gardaí have announced today that a man has been arrested in connection to the death of a woman, in April, on a Galway farm. Read more below.

A man in his 50’s has been arrested by Gardaí in Galway this morning, December 11th, in connection with the death of a woman on a farm in Galway.

The woman died at approximately 4pm on April 27th in 2018, following an incident on a farm in the Boula area of Portumna, Co. Galway, as originally posted by us here. The woman was aged in her 70’s and was named as local dairy farmer, Chrissie Treacy, after news of the accident broke.

The pensioner, who was single with no children, lived on the Galway farm for the entirety of her life. She helped run the farm up until her untimely death. Originally, it was thought that the elderly farmer had died after being struck by an agricultural machine.

The man arrested earlier today is currently being detained under Section 4 of The Criminal Justice Act 1984 at Loughrea Garda Station.
