A man in his thirties has died after a crash in Tipperary.

Gardai were called to the scene of the single-car accident on the N24 at Killaloan on the outskirts of Clonmel shortly after 3am on Thursday.

The driver of the car was taken to South Tipperary General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Two passengers in the car, a man and woman both in their 20s, were also taken to hospital.

Their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

Officers in Clonmel are appealing for witnesses.

“We are appealing for witnesses, and in particular anyone who was travelling on this stretch of road between 2.45am and 3.15am this morning, to contact us at Clonmel Garda Station.

“We would also ask any road user with camera footage to make it available to investigating Gardai.”

The road was closed to traffic and diversions put in place.
