East Clare man dies in traffic accident

A YOUNG man from East Clare died in a single car traffic accident on the north-bound lane of the M7 motorway near Roscrea last night.

The deceased has not yet been officially named but is from a well-known family in the East Clare community, where the news has been treated with shock. He and three other passengers were returning to college in Dublin after a weekend at home.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and removed to Limerick Regional Hospital where a post mortem is due to take place today. The three other occupants, two young women and a man, were taken to Portlaoise Hospital but were later released.

Gardaí carried out a technical examination of the accident scene close to Jct 22 ( Roscrea) and issued an appeal for any witness to contact them at Roscrea or any garda station.
