A Kilkenny native has been awarded €92k after a fall while loading a horse for a well known trainer.

A man has been awarded €92,000 in damages by the High Court after injuring his shoulder while loading a horse.

The incident occurred in November 2013 when James Foley fell after a horse he was loading on the stud farm of trainer Margaret Mullins in Kilkenny.

Spooked

Foley who claimed the horse was spooked causing him to fall and injury his shoulder maintained that the defendant Mullins had not assisted him when he was carrying out the task.

Ruling judge Justice Hanna awarded Foley damages of €92,000 saying that Mullins should have assisted the man. Foleys fall and subsequent injury to his shoulder lead to the need for surgery.

Ms Mullins denied the claims and said Foley had contributed to his own injuries by not handling the horse in the correct manner.

A stay on the award has been placed by the judge into the event of an appeal.
