Two men have died in separate incidents on Ireland’s roads within two days.

A man in his 30s was fatally injured in a two-car crash in Gorey, Co Wexford, on Sunday morning.

He was the only person in one of the vehicles at the time of the incident at 8.30am, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the second car, a woman, was injured and rushed to Wexford General Hospital.

On Saturday, a man died in hospital in Dublin after his motorbike was involved in a collision with a tractor.

The incident happened at Balrath Cross in Kells, Co Meath, on Saturday afternoon.

The 26-year-old motorcycle rider was seriously injured and rushed to hospital, but died in the early hours of Sunday morning, a Garda spokesman said.

The driver of the tractor, a 19-year-old man, was not injured.

Gardai are appealing for anyone who might be able to assist with their investigations into both incidents to contact them.
