The father who died alongside his five-year-old son in an horrific head-on crash between his car and a lorry has been described as a "great father".

Co Laois man Vincent Rossi (30) and his son Sully died in the collision just outside of Tullamore, Co Offaly, on Monday evening.

Mr Rossi's daughter Hayley (9) was critically injured and his son Daniel (8) was seriously injured.

Neighbours yesterday described Mr Rossi as a devoted father and caring neighbour.

"He was always so friendly and was funny and so quick," said one neighbour.

"He was a great father," she added. "The kids were always out playing together."
