Investigations have begun over two unrelated farm tragedies in Ireland and Northern Ireland this week, both involving farm machinery.

 

A man in his 70s, named locally as Pat Curran, died in an incident thought to have involved a tractor at about 5.30pm on Monday (December 21, 2015).

 

Mr Curran, from Kilclief between Ardglass and Strangford, was very well known in the area and had been involved in farming all his life.

 

In Galway, an eight-year-old boy suffered fatal injuries after falling into a potato sorting machine on the family farm in Kilcolgan on Saturday (December 19, 2015).

 

The young boy, Mark Fordham, was taken to University Hospital Galway where he was pronounced dead.
