Tributes have been paid to an Irishman who was killed in a car crash in Australia on Sunday.

Father-of-two Kevin Ivers, who was in his 30s and originally from Pearse Park, Golden in Co Tipperary, died in the incident in Perth on June 9.

It is believed to have happened during torrential rain.

Mr Ivers ran the Golden Plant Hire in Gingin, Perth, Western Australia.

Locals in his tight-knit home village in Tipperary, about five miles from Cashel, are said to be shocked by the news.

Kevin had attended primary school in the village of Golden and secondary school at Cashel Community School.

One local said that Kevin was a gentleman and that many had ‘’great memories of him growing up in Pearse Park in Golden’’.

The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs have been informed of the news and are offering Consular assistance to Kevin’s fiancée Rhyllie and his sons aged three and five.

Mr Ivers is survived by his fiancée Rhyllie Vine, sons Sonny and Banjo, parents Richie and Ann, brothers Paddy and David, sisters Donna and Aoife, grandmother Bridget, brother-in-law Michael, sisters-in-law Emma and Sheila, nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts, relatives and his many friends in Australia and Golden.

No funeral arrangements have been made as yet and are likely be announced in the coming days.
