13 Year Old School Boy Awarded €15,000 After Beer Keg Falls And Fractures His Foot

The court heard that in September 2015 Kyle Kiernan had been playing with his Trinity Comprehensive Secondary School when one of a number of kegs which had been stacked nearby fell and hit his foot. Kyle was taken to the A&E Department of Children’s University Hospital, Temple Street, Dublin, where X-rays revealed a fracture.

Judge Terence O’Sullivan heard that Kyle had needed to wear a below-knee cast for four weeks and that the wounds have left a small scar on Kyle’s foot.

Through his mother Denise Kiernan, Kyle sued the Trustees and Board of Management of Trinity Comprehensive Secondary School, and the Trustees of Setanta GAA Club, both with an address at Ballymun Road, Dublin, for negligence.  Kyle claimed the defendants failed to have proper regard for his safety.

The case was settled for €15,000 which was approved by Judge Terence O’ Sullivan.
