Tributes are being paid to a young Longford woman who died in an equestrian accident over the weekend.

Bryonny Sainsbury, a hairdresser from Newtownforbes, passed away on Sunday night following an incident with a horse.

The young woman had a huge interest in horses and ran her own hairdressing business, The Hair Bar by BryonnyBee, in Newtownforbes.

The wider Longford community has been left shocked at Bryonny’s sudden death after it was reported by the Longford Leader earlier today.

Paying tribute on social media, Bryonny’s salon The Hair Bar wrote: “It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have to announce the passing of our bright and beautiful Bryonny. We are beyond heartbroken.

“We ask that you keep her wonderful family in your thoughts and prayers. Also we ask for your patience and understanding at the closing of the salon until further notice at this incredibly difficult time.”

Bryonny’s heartbroken partner David said: “I love you so much babe my heart is broken. I miss you so much you were my [world]. I’ll never get over you xx.”

Her mum also shared an emotional tribute to her Facebook page, writing: “Our hearts are broken, fly high our beautiful talented girl.”

A friend of Bryonny’s shared some photos from their school days and said: “Devastating news last night to hear our school friend has passed.

“You were a beaut inside and out and so gifted and talented. Plenty of laughs and memories we shared through the years growing together. Sleep well my friend.”
