The incident claimed the life of a man in his 60s.

Three people were killed and 13 serious crashes left road users with serious and life-threatening injuries over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend.

Tributes have been pouring in for Gar Fennelly, a pensioner from Carlow, who died while he was out cycling in Castledermot on Easter Sunday.

One person wrote: "May you rest in peace Gar. Couldn't meet a kinder soul. Deepest sympathy to Tommy and family at this time."

Another said: "Deepest sympathy to Danny, Joe and all of Gar's family at this very sad and difficult time.
May Ger now rest in eternal peace."

Mr Fennelly is survived by his brothers and sisters Rita, Joe, Pauline, Danny, Patricia, Teresa, Thomas and Jenny.
