Limerick man dies in Spanish road accident

Kevin Uniacke died in a road accident in Spain

A well-known Limerick businessman has died in a road accident in Spain.

It is understood Kevin Uniacke, who had been living in Kilkee in recent times, died while riding a motorbike on Saturday.

Aged in his early 70s and originally from Corbally, Mr Uniacke worked as an accountant.

He is well known in sporting circles in Limerick for being a member of the Crescent Comprehensive team which won a Munster Schools’ Senior Cup medal in 1963 – two years after winning a Junior Cup medal. 

Details of the fatal road accident remain unclear and it is not known when Mr Uniacke’s remains will be repatriated.

An investigation is being carried out by the Spanish authorities.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that it is "aware of the death of an Irish citizen in Spain and is providing consular assistance".
