Just before 1am on the 21st of March the Darry BMW he was driving was in collision with road signs and a telephone poll on the Port Road.

Gardai continue to appeal for information on the crash – an officer said they found the incident to be ‘unusual’ and are trying to establish the cause of the crash.
