Tragedy on the River Moy

May 29th, 2018 | by

Report from the Irish Independent:

‘A man in his fifties drowned on Monday evening after he fell into the water while fishing.

It’s understood that the deceased man was fishing for salmon on the River Moy close to Foxford in Co. Mayo when he apparently lost his footing on the river bank and fell in.

His body has since been recovered and was brought to Mayo University Hospital in Castlebar, where a post mortem will be carried out tomorrow.

Other anglers in the area were unable to save the fisherman, who was to be from the area.

The tragedy occurred close to Foxford Bridge.’

Our thoughts are with his family. RIP.
