It happened outside the village of Mullinahone in south Tipperary at about 1pm, when it's believed the man -- named locally as Michael Keating, aged in his 50s -- was shoeing a horse. The circumstances surrounding his death are still being investigated but it's understood the horse may have kicked out at Mr Keating, striking him in the head and causing a fatal injury.

Gardai are treating it as a tragic accident.
