Two people have been killed in a car crash in Dublin.

The man and woman died when the vehicle they were travelling in left the road and hit a lamppost in Butterfield Avenue, Templeogue, on Tuesday morning.

The incident has been referred to Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission (GSCO) for investigation.

The bodies have been taken to Tallaght University Hospital and post-mortem examinations will be carried out later.

The Garda Forensic Collision Investigation Unit has examined the scene of the crash and the road has reopened.

Officers are appealing for anyone who was travelling in the area at the time of the collision and who may have dash cam footage to contact gardai in Tallaght.

Elsewhere, a man in his 80s was killed in a car crash in the Kilbonane area of Aherla, Co Cork, on Monday night.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his body was taken to Cork University Hospital where a post- mortem examination will take place.

The road remained closed on Tuesday morning so a forensic examination could be carried out.

Gardai are appealing for anyone with information, particularly any road users who were in the area between 9pm on Monday and 2.30am on Tuesday who may have dash cam footage, to contact gardai in Macroom.
