Multiple Collisions Both Sides Of Tipperary’s N7 Motorway

One person has been airlifted to hospital and a number of other people have been injured, following a number of separate vehicle collisions, in poor weather conditions, here in Co Tipperary today.

Some thirteen vehicles were involved, in multiple collisions, on both sides of the M7 at Glenbeha, Roscrea, in the north of the county.

A number of motorised vehicles either collided with each other; crashed into barriers or left the road between J22 and J23 on the western side of Roscrea at around 3.30pm.

Fire crews were summoned from Roscrea, Newport and Cloughjordan stations together with a fleet of ambulances, who attended the incidents, with Gardaí and motorway maintenance crews obliged to set up immediate diversions routes for those travelling the route.

The Emergency Aero-Medical Service, latter based in Athlone, was also summoned to expedite the removal of one casualty from the scene, to University Hospital Limerick. A number of others injured were also transported from the scene by road ambulances.

The various collisions  are understood to have occurred on an inclined bend , following a particular heavy downpour of hailstones.

Efforts were begun immediately to clear all the vehicles and the resulting debris from the scene, with the motorway remaining closed in both directions between Roscrea and Moneygall.

€900,000 Settlement Against South Tipperary General Hospital

In the High Court, South Tipperary General Hospital has apologised to the family of a man who died of a heart attack just a day after he was discharged from the hospital.

The late Mr PJ Lonergan of Templenoe, Cashel, Co Tipperary, a stove engineer, was just 39 years of age when he died of acute irregular heart beat the morning after he was sent home from hospital having had two Electrocardiographs (ECGs); latter a simple painless test, which measures the rhythm and electrical activity of the heart.

Mr PJ Lonergan’s son Mark, aged 19 years, through his mother, Mrs Anne Marie Butler, had sued the HSE over the death of his father on May 7th 2014. Mark has agreed a settlement for €900,000 following this High Court action.

In the apology read out in Court, South Tipperary General Hospital apologised for the shortcomings in their care of Mr Lonergan, who had been referred to the regularly over crowded medical establishment, on March 6th, 2014, by his General Practitioner.
