A man remains in hospital this morning following a farm accident in Asdee yesterday.

The Valentia Coast Guard received the call at 2.55 yesterday afternoon and tasked Shannon helicopter Rescue 115 to the scene.

The helicopter was originally tasked to the scene of an overturned truck at the Kilgarvan Windfarm but was subsequently stood down as it wasn’t needed.

Rescue 115 with the help of Ballybunion Coast Guard then airlifted the 38 year old man to University Hospital Limerick where he remains this morning.

His injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
