Laois Farm Safety Group's Annual Remembrance Going Online

Embrace FARM has been holding the service since 2014.

A Laois farm safety group is holding its annual remembrance service online for the first time this year.

Embrace FARM was set up by the Brian and Norma Rohan from Shanahoe, after Brian's father died in a farm accident in 2012.

They've been holding a remembrance ceremony every year since 2014, to unite those who have experienced similar tragedies.

16 people have died in farm accidents in Ireland so far this year - 13 in the Republic and 3 in the North. 

The Embrace service will be live streamed online this Sunday at 2 o'clock and Norma Rohan is encouraging to people bereaved by farm accidents to send in videos and photos of their loved ones:
