Tipperary Driver Looses Life In Single Car Collision

A male driver has lost his life following a single car collision, which took place possibly during the early hours of this morning. The accident occurred close to Portroe in North Tipperary, just a few hundred metres from the victims home; on a bad bend close to Castlelough, west of Nenagh; latter approximately 5km from the village of Portroe.

We understand that the collision may have remained undiscovered for some time, before being eventually located at around 8.00am this morning by a passing early morning motorist.

The victim has been named on Facebook as Mr Joe Lawlor, a local, single man from the Portroe area and a prominent member of Seymour’s Bar and Darts Club, situated in the village.

The road in the vicinity of the accident remained closed for a number of hours as forensic Gardaí from Limerick city carried out their investigations.  Gardaí in Nenagh are presently asking anyone who may have information regarding this tragedy to contact them on Tel: (067) 50457.

This morning’s death increases the number of fatalities over the last 7 months on Tipperary roads, to a total of eight persons.
