Two Road Deaths Reported In Tipperary

garda crestTwo people, believed to be a male in his 80’s and a female in her 40’s, latter the mother of two young children, have both died in a car crash here in Co Tipperary, this morning.

The two-car collision happened in the townsland of Ballykisteen, close to Limerick Junction on the N24 main Tipperary to Limerick road at around 7.15am, with nobody else being injured.

It is understood the vehicles were travelling in opposite directions on a straight stretch of road in the vicinity of Limerick Junction racecourse, when this collision occurred, killing both drivers at the scene. Their bodies have been removed to South Tipperary Hospital in Clonmel.

Emergency services are still at the scene of the crash and the road remains sealed off and will continue to remain so, with diversions in place for several hours, to allow for a technical examination by Gardaí to take place.
