A MIDDLE aged man has died in a farm accident in Cork.

The man - a 50 year old from Tipperary - suffered fatal injuries as he worked on a farm outside Glenville, some 20km north of Cork city, on Wednesday evening.

It is understood that the man suffered fatal injuries when his tractor overturned above him, and died before he could be transferred to Cork University Hospital (CUH).

As is routine in such tragedies, the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has been informed.

A file will now be prepared for the Cork Coroner's office.

An inquest into the tragedy will be staged in early 2020.

Gardaí stressed that the man will only be identified when all relatives are informed.

Farming remains Ireland's most dangerous sector of the economy in terms of work-related deaths.

A total of 17 people lost their lives in farm-related accidents in 2018.

However, that was five fatalities fewer than the average of 22 annual deaths recorded between 2013-2017.

The majority of those who died in farm accidents last year were aged 65 years and older.

Almost two thirds of fatal accidents involved various types of agri-machinery.

Around one-third of accidents involved injuries sustained from handling livestock.

The next most dangerous sectors of the Irish economy, in terms of fatal work place accidents, were the construction, transport and fishing industries.
