Three men have died following a road crash outside Cashel, Co Tipperary.

The accident happened on the Dublin side of the Old Cashel Road shortly before 11pm last night, less than 2km from the centre of Cashel and just before the M8 motorway.

The three people who died had been the occupants of a car that was in collision with a lorry.

Gardaí have yet to formally identify the victims, but initial indications are that they were not from the locality.

Gardaí have been trying to establish what exactly happened.

They say it appears to have been a head-on collision, and are describing the accident as one of the worst seen in the area for some time.

The lorry driver has been taken to hospital, but it is believed his condition is not life-threatening.

It is hoped he will be able to shed light on how the accident occurred.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses, and say at this stage they may need the public’s help in identifying those who have died.
