The boy's condition is described as "critical."

Gardaí are investigating a road traffic collision between two vehicles in the Knocknaboul area of Ballydesmond, Cork. The incident occurred at around 4.45pm yesterday (26 June).

One of the vehicles had been carrying five people, and an 11-year-old passenger was airlifted from the scene and brought to Limerick Regional Hospital. A spokesperson for An Garda Síochána has said that his condition is described as critical.

All four other occupants of the vehicle were also brought to Limerick Regional Hospital, and their injuries are described as non-life-threatening. Gardaí say the driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.
