THE investigation is continuing into the death, last week, of Jim Carroll, a father of two who worked for Limerick City and County Council.

Mr Carroll was found dead in the council yard off Sheahan’s Road in Newcastle West on Tuesday morning of last week.

He was, it is understood, on his way to work at the time but was found dead, apparently crushed by the gates.

Mr Carroll, who had lived for many years in Gurteen, Templeglantine, moved to live in Beechwood Gardens, Newcastle West last year. He had two sons, Peadar and Seamus, both of whom are well-known in handball circles.

Mr Carroll was described as a quiet, well-respected man by those who knew him. And his death dismayed and shocked his council colleagues, friends and the wider community.

Mr Carroll operated the council’s suction cleaner and was a regular sight in the West Limerick area. His remains were brought to Templeglantine church last Friday evening where Requiem Mass was said on Saturday. Afterwards, Mr Carroll’s remains were cremated in a private ceremony in Ringaskiddy, Co Cork.

But the investigations into how Mr Carroll died is continuing.
