Co Sligo man dies in motorcycle collision in Canada

A Co Sligo man has died in a road collision in Canada.

22-year old Tommy Jackson from Ballisodare was killed while on his way to work in Alberta when his motorcycle collided with a moose.

The freak accident occurred last Friday.

It’s understood Mr Jackson was living in Canada for the past year.

The Department of Foreign Affairs is aware of the case and is providing consular assistance to the family.

A GoFundMe page called “Bring Tommy Home” has been set up to assist in bringing his remains back to Ireland.
