A south Dublin Equestrian Centre has paid a heartbreaking tribute to a young Dublin girl who died in a training accident on Wednesday afternoon.
She was rushed to Our Lady’s Hospital in Crumlin after being treated by Dublin Fire Brigade and the National Ambulance Service at the scene but sadly died in hospital a time later.
Greenogue Equestrian Centre described the young girl as a “star” horse rider.
They told Dublin Live: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the poor child. She was a star in the equestrian community and will be hugely missed.
A garda spokeswoman said: “Dublin Fire Brigade and the National Ambulance Service were in attendance and providing medical assistance to a young female (15 years) who was injured during an exercise event.
“She was removed to Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) at Crumlin where she later passed away.
“The Coroner has been notified of this tragic incident. The Health and Safety Authority have also been notified and will carry out an examination tomorrow, Thursday 17th June, 2021.”
The spokeswoman added that investigations into the incident are ongoing with a file being prepared for the Coroners Court.
