Monaghan crash victim was a native of Fanad

It's emerged that the pregnant woman who died following the three car crash outside Carrickmacross on Monday was a native of Fanad.

39 year old Roisin Connolly of Drumcondra, Dublin, was born Roisin Langan from Ballure in Fanad, where her mother and other family members still live. She went to school in Doaghbeg  National School.

She moved from home in the 1980s, and represented Manchester in the Mary from Dungloe festival in 1989.

Her remains will be brought home to Fanad tomorrow evening, for burial in Fanavolty on Friday.

Ms Connolly died in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, and her unborn daughter Catherine was pronounced dead a short time later.

The other two men to die in the collision were 28 year old Glen Curtis from Nobber in Co.Meath and 27 year old  Paul Carrol from Kingscourt in Co.Cavan. Mr Curtis was a nephew of Anne Curtis who died with four members of her family in 2001 when their car collided with a milk tanker as they were travelling to Bundoran for a family holiday.
