Eight people have been killed in a car crash in County Donegal, about 15 miles from the Northern Ireland border.
The two-car collision happened on the Drumfree to Clonmany road at 2230 BST on Sunday.
Seven of the dead were travelling in a black Volkswagen Passat, the driver of which survived. The eighth person to die was the driver of the second car.
It is believed the 66-year-old man had been returning home after playing bingo in Buncrana.
The seven young men who died in the Passat were 21-year-old Mark McLaughlin, from Fahan; Paul Doherty and Ciaran Sweeney who were 19 and from Ballyliffin; Patrick McLaughlin, 21, from Burnfoot; 22-year-old Eamonn McDaid and 21-year-old Damien McLaughlin, both from Buncrana, and James McEleney, 23, from Clonmany ...
People, slow down ad take it easy. There's enough people killed on Donegal roads.
The Irish Times has more details:
Stephen Lambert of the National Roads Authority said it was the highest death toll in a road crash since records began. “I have never come across such a multiple road fatality scene and I am finding it very difficult to take in,” he said after visiting the scene.
