Corcoran, Michael

The Downs was dealt a severe blow last August when Michael lost his life in a freak accident. The 79-year-old farmer slipped as he attempted to rescue a bullock which had become trapped in a drain and, despite the best efforts of his wife Rose and two other people who had accompanied him, the accident proved fatal.

A native of Cooksborough, Michael lived in Baltrasna for a number of years before settling with Rose in The Downs where they reared their eight children.
