The funeral takes place this morning in Mulrankin of Dylan Boggan, (23), Mayglass, who died as a result of injuries sustained when he was kicked by a horse while working at a stables in Fethard-on-Sea around 1.30pm on Tuesday.
Mr Boggan was airlifted by Rescue 117 helicopter to Cork University Hospital where sadly he surrendered his fight for life.
The tragedy has been deeply felt in the community where Mr Boggan was well-known and popular. Cllr Ger Carthy, who is also the Ambulance Officer for the Wexford region and attended the scene said; “ “This really is a tragedy of unspeakable proportions to lose a man so young.”
Cllr Jim Codd said; “Dylan Boggan was once my student but we became very good friends. We shared a passion for lurchers, cobs and country living. Our shared interests led to many animated conversations over the years.
“He was a gentle, sincere and wonderful young man. I know I speak for so many when I express my absolute devastation at the news of his passing. May you rest in peace my friend.”
The Committee, instructors, past members, and present members of the Killinick Pony Club are deeply saddened by the tragic passing of former club member, Dylan Boggan. “We express our deepest sympathy to Dylan’s family at this very sad time.
