Three Die In Car Crash Near Cashel

Gardaí are seeking help to identify three men who died in a car crash near Cashel, Co Tipperary, last night.

The accident happened on the Dublin side of the Old Cashel Road at Deansgrange shortly before 11pm last night, less than 2km from the centre of Cashel and just before the M8 motorway.

The victims had been the occupants of a car that was in collision with a lorry. Gardaí say it appears to have been a head-on collision, and are describing the accident as one of the worst seen in the area for some time.

The lorry driver has been taken to South Tipperary General Hospital, but it is believed his condition is not life-threatening, and it is hoped he may be able to shed light on how the crash occurred.

Any persons who may have witnessed this collision are asked to contact the Gardai at Cashel 062-75840, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-600111, or 062 – 75840 or any Garda Station.

The N8 remains closed for a technical examination of the scene and diversions are in place.
