THE main Limerick to Tipperary road at Boher re-opened shortly after mid-day this Wednesday following a serious crash earlier in the day.

The single vehicle accident occurred near the car park wall of O’Neill’s pub in Boher on the N24 - the main Tipperary to Limerick Road. Emergency services rushed to the scene and the driver has been taken to University Hospital Limerick.

“No one knows who the driver is, we are not sure if he is local or not,” one local man at the scene said.

“We are told he is in a serious enough condition in hospital.”

Local councillor John Egan was also not aware of the driver’s identity. He criticised some motorists who he described as a “disgrace” after they abused gardai and council staff over the road closure.
