Two killed in road smashes.


TWO men died on Irish roads yesterday after two horror crashes in separate parts of the country.

The first smash in Castlefin, Co Donegal, claimed the life of 19-year-old Conor Holmes.

The teenager was travelling home from a night out at the cinema in Lifford when the car he was driving collided with another vehicle minutes from his home.

Conor's parents Gerard and Marian run a local taxi firm and were described as "well-known, lovely people". A friend of the Holmes family last night said: "It's terribly sad. Our thoughts are with them."

Elsewhere, a 45-year-old man was killed after he crashed into an oil tanker in Tuam, Co Galway. The driver of the truck was treated for shock.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses to either accident to contact the local stations with information.
