‘You’d always see him driving his New Holland tractor in the road’

The man – who died in a farm accident in Abbeyfeale, Co. Limerick on Saturday (August 24th) - has been named locally as Patrick Broderick.

Patrick – who was in his 40s – was seriously injured when a wall of a shed collapsed; Gardaí and the emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 7:30 pm.

The farmer was pronounced dead a short while later and his body was removed to University Hospital Limerick.

Tributes

Tributes have poured in for the well-known farmer; Local Fine Gael councillor Liam Galvin told the Limerick Leader: “He was a man who worked hard on his family farm and looked after his mother Kathleen.”

“He was very obliging; he helped people out, and always did what he could.”

“You’d always see him driving his New Holland tractor in the road,” he concluded.
