Emergency services were called to the scene shortly after 3pm on Tuesday. Benny Collins was taken by air ambulance to Morriston Hospital where he later died.

His wife Mel Collins, a senior nurse at the same hospital said in a statement she was "overwhelmed by the kind words and expressions of sympathy and would like to thank everybody for their support."

Benny was a fantastic husband and devoted father to our wonderful son, Harry.

Words cannot express our feelings at this sad time. Harry has been so brave and his dad would be so proud of him.

Benny was such a kind and lovely man and was loved by everyone who knew him. All of his family in Athea, County Limerick, loved Benny and were so proud of him.
