Man removed to University Hospital Limerick after fatal motorcycle crash in Tipperary

A MAN in his 30s has been removed to University Hospital Limerick following a fatal motorcycle crash in Tipperary at the weekend.

Gardai said that a motorcyclist, a man in his 30s, collided with a parked vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. His body has been removed to the morgue at University Hospital Limerick where a post mortem will be carried out.

The road remains closed currently and local diversions are in place. The scene will be examined by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators.
