Rebecca Bissett (29) was taking paracetamol over the Easter weekend in 2018 and was hospitalised on Easter Monday, an inquest heard. The young woman was described as a "great daughter" who was much loved by her family. "Becca was a great daughter; she was loved by all her nieces and nephews. She used to do all the activities with them, zip lining and things, she was a great help and they loved her," mother Geraldine Bissett told Dublin Coroner's Court. Ms Bissett lived at home with her mother and two brothers at Fostra, Aughnacliffe, Co Longford.

The Kerry TD was attacked by the cow after she calved, according to his nephew.

KERRY TD Michael Healy-Rae is being treated in hospital for suspected smoke inhalation after a fire was detected at his property.

The incident occurred at 9am this morning at the politician's Kilgarvan property.

It is understood Mr Healy-Rae was at home pending travelling to Dublin for Dail business.

A fire was detected at the Kilgarvan shop which also serves as Mr Healy-Rae's office and political base.

His office is the rear of the shop previously operated by his father.

He lives around 200m away.

Mr Healy-Rae raced to ensure the property was empty after realising a fire had broken out.

Brothers Michael and Danny Healy - Rae were elected to the Dáil for the new Kerry constituency, with Michael Healy - Rae obtaining over 20,000 1st preference

The local fire brigade were immediately alerted.

It is understood the TD was checking that the property was empty and was attempting to save a number of important files when he was partially overcome by smoke.

He was treated at the scene by a doctor before the decision was taken to transfer him to hospital for precautionary tests.

A local ambulance brought him to Kerry hospital.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

An investigation into the cause of the blaze is underway but the belief is that the fire was accidental.

The fire was quickly extinguished by Kerry Fire Brigade.

Four years ago, Mr Healy-Rae narrowly avoided serious injury when he was attacked by a cow on the family farm.
