The loss of the three Spences was one of the worst farming accidents in Northern Ireland.
Here their tragic loss is recalled.
Nevin Spence was a talented centre with the Ulster rugby team. Aged just 22, he was on the cusp of Irish honours. The rugby world was his oyster. But on September 15, 2012, he lost his life. In the worst farming accident in over 20 years in Ulster, Nevin was taken from the family he adored in an attempt to rescue a beloved dog from a slurry tank in Hillsborough, Co Down.
