A plumber, has been awarded €6,750 in compensation by the Circuit Court after he broke his ankle when he tripped over wire at Dun Laoghaire Golf Club
Barry McGrath from Fingals in Dublin had been working at the golf course and tripped and fell the stray wire as he was leaving the premises in May 2010. X-rays revealed that he had broken his left ankle and was unable to work for some time.
He claimed compensation against Cosgraves Developments, the managers of the site. They denied liable stating that the wire could easily be seen but Mr Justice Raymond Groarke found in Mr.McGrath’s favour stating that the wire should never have been located where he fell.
