A south Roscommon community has been numbed with grief following the tragic death of Lecarrow native, Trevor Brennan, in a tragic river accident.
The 34 year old slipped into the River Shannon in the Quays area on the town’s west side shortly before midnight on December 30. The rescue services, Lough Ree RNLI and Athlone Sub Aqua volunteers, responded to an emergency call and following an intensive search recovered the man’s body.
He was removed to Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe where sadly, he was pronounced dead. The incident is being treated as an accidental drowning.
Mass of the Resurrection for Trevor took place this morning in St. John’s Church, Lecarrow, followed by burial in the local cemetery.
