Man dies after hitting head on fireplace

A young man died tragically after he tripped over a coffee table and hit his head on a marble fireplace.

He was named last night as Luke Ryan (24), who had recently moved into his new home at St Herblain Park, Kilcohan, in Waterford city.

Gardai were called to the house around 1am yesterday. A post-mortem ruled out foul play.

Mr Ryan, who was originally from John's Park estate, had moved into his house two months ago after securing a mortgage.

In an unrelated incident, Tara McGovern, who was in her late 20s, was found dead at a bungalow at Grange Cohan in the city. The find was made around 3am yesterday and the emergency services were immediately called. It is suspected she died of a drugs overdose.
