UK weather LIVE – Met Office issues HUNDREDS of flood warnings, as homes are submerged and evacuated in the wake of Hurricane Franklin

In memory of council worker’s father, 59 years old, killed in Typhoon Eunice

TRIBUTES was paid to a council worker who was killed in Hurricane Eunice after he was crushed by a tree.

Billy Kinsella, 59, was clearing debris on a road near his home in Co Wexford, Ireland when he was tragically killed.

The father of one child, a Wexford County Council employee, helped at the scene of another fallen tree in Ballythomas when he was seriously injured.

Councilor Sinn Fein Fionntan O Suilleabhain, who lives near Mr Kinsella and grew up with his family, paid tribute to the “quiet family man”.

“People in the area were devastated,” he said. It was a tragedy for his wife Rita and their only child, Conor.

“Billy died in the line of duty while out on council work and attending the scene of a fallen tree.

“He died right around the corner where we were both living and he died in a way that made it most tragic.

“He comes from a prestigious family and a very hardworking family. He was a quiet family man and devoted to his son, whom he took to sporting events all over the place.

“Conor plays for the Wexford under-20s and will be heavily involved in the GAA, much like Billy’s father before him.

“Everybody was shocked.”
