Cavan Cattle Drover to Receive Compensation for Bull Kick

Patrick Lynch of Crubany, Co Cavan is to receive damages from his employer after the cattle drover was kicked by a bullock. Lynch, who was one of three cattle drovers employed by Cavan Co-op Mart in October 2003 to escort cattle to a sales ring, had to do perform the job of all three men on the day which he was injured, as the other two had called in sick.

Lynch, who was kicked in the groin, suffered trauma to one of his testis, and was taken to Cavan General Hospital for treatment.

The case is now to be referred to the High Court for an assessment of personal injury damages.
