Local Fine Gael councillor Liam Galvin described him as a hard-working and lovely man.

He told the Limerick Leader: “He was a man who worked hard on his family farm, and looked after his mother Kathleen.

“He was very obliging. He helped people out, and always did what he could.

“You’d always see him driving his New Holland tractor in the road. There was always a piece of machinery on the back of it. That was his life.”

One person wrote online: “Rest in peace my friend.” Another added: “Rip so so sad.”

A third commented: “Rest in peace Patrick condolences to his mam sisters and brothers.”

Mr Broderick lived with his elderly mother Kathleen and is also survived by sisters Nora-Mary and Kathleen, as well as brothers Dan, David and Denis.
