An inquest will be held later this year, although the police and the HSE have stated that it was a "tragic accident". 

Bales of hay and straw stacked up into towering structures in barns are a common sight on farms.  The new round bales are much larger and heavier than the old fashioned rectangular type. These structures are inherently unstable and dangerous.  They can also be an allurement for young children who love to climb and scramble among the bales.  Whether it be a farm, a riding stables or other establishment, awareness of the dangers of these unstable structures is crucial to prevent accidents like this with such tragic consequences.
