Irish actor Steve Wall asks for help following tragic family accident

Irish actor Steve Wall has spoken about tragic car accident that killed his niece and has left his brother hospitalised.

The accident, which happened on March 15th, as Steve Wall’s bother brought his own daughter Estlin, who would have been four next week, to creche.

The accident happened in Inagh, Co.Clare.

Estlin had been battling injuries on life support since the crash last Wednesday but last night the decision was made to take her off the support. Meanwhile, in a hospital in Dublin, Vincent has been left unconscious and with massive brain trauma.

Taking to Twitter, Steve shared the fundraising page, saying “This is my brother Vinnie and his family. We are all devastated. He is pure kindness. Please have a read and RT.”

He also said, “You read about terrible family tragedies and wonder how people get through it. Then it happens to you.”

Steve Wall, pictured left, is also the Frontman of the band ‘The Stunning’.

Steve Wall is well know for his roles in Vikings, Moone Boy and Rebellion.

A fundraising page has been set up for the family which aims to raise money for the family.

The page reads;

“The communities of West Clare, particularly around Ennistymon and Lahinch have been shattered with the news of a horrific car crash. Vincent Wall and his little girl Estlin – who would have been four next week – were involved in a collision on the morning of Wednesday March 15th.”

“Vincent was taking her to the crèche in Inagh as he did every morning. In a split second everything changed forever. Little Estlin sustained a fatal brain injury and on Saturday night March 18th she was taken off life support in order to let her pass away peacefully and naturally in her mother Amy’s arms.”

“Vincent has massive brain trauma and is still unconscious in a separate hospital in Dublin.”

“On top of all this Amy is nursing their 12-week old baby Mannix. Her family, the Dutil’s, have arrived from the US and the Wall family have also gathered in Dublin where they’ve been supported by some of Vinnie and Amy’s close.”

Our hearts go out to the family in this tragic time. You can make a donation on their page here.
