Awful news just in.

Two people have been killed in separate road crashes overnight.

Gardai have confirmed that a woman in her 20 died in a crash in Co Louth in the early hours of this morning.

The woman was a passenger in a van which crashed into a tree in Carnalogue shortly before 2am, reports RTE News.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

A second passenger, a man also in his 20s, is being treated at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda for injuries which are not believed to be life threatening.

Another man died following a crash in Mayo.

Meanwhile, a man in his 40s died following a single vehicle crash in Co. Mayo.

The man died at the scene when the car he was driving crashed on the N17 in Claremorris.
