10017811[Padraig Gaffney]

The young Irishman who declared earlier this week that a Melbourne flood damage court case had ruined his life is dead.

The circumstances around the death of Padraig Gaffney are unknown but the Irish Echo can confirm that the 29-year-old died on Wednesday, May 7 just a day after he faced court in Melbourne.
Mr Gaffney, who was originally from Lanesborough in Co Longford, pleaded guilty to criminal damage and was handed a $10,000 fine over an incident in April last year when he set off a fire hydrant in a hotel.
