A man has died after a mine collapsed yesterday evening in Lisheen, Co Tipperary.

The incident occured at around 4.30pm at Lisheen.

The man was driving a loader when the collapse occurred and was found trapped in the vehicle underneath a rockfall.

He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
