GARDAI in Newcastle West have renewed an appeal for witnesses to a fatal road crash which claimed the life of a local woman.
Margaret ‘Peg’ Kelly, 71, of Ballygeele, Monagea, Newcastle West, lost her life when the car she was travelling in was involved in a collision on the N21 on Sunday evening.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The three-car pile-up happened at Ballyfrawley which is between two and three miles outside Newcastle West, on the Rathkeale side of the town.
Sergeant Denis Woods says the road was very busy at the time and has appealed for witnesses to come forward.
“We are appealing for any persons who were on that stretch of road between 6.20pm and 6.45pm who may be able to assist us in our investigation to contact us here at Newcastle West garda station on 069 20650,” said Sgt Woods.
