Elderly UK couple die in County Limerick crash
An elderly couple from the UK have died in a crash between a car and a lorry in the Republic of Ireland.
It happened in County Limerick, on the N24 Limerick to Tipperary road, shortly before 11:00 local time on Wednesday.
A woman in her 70s was travelling with her husband, who was in his 80s, when their car was in collision with a lorry near the village of Dromkeen.
They were both pronounced dead at the scene. The lorry driver was taken to hospital by ambulance.
However, a Garda (Irish police) spokesman said the man's injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
It is believed the couple were from England and were on a visit to Ireland.
