The icy conditions have taken their first victims, with two fatal road accidents over the weekend.

This weekend saw temperatures drop as low as minus 3 in places, with snow falling also.

Two people have died in separate road incidents as a result of the cold weather. The first was a woman, who was tragically killed at approximately 7 am yesterday. She died after her car veered off course and hit a barrier on the M7. The incident occurred near Nenagh Co. Tipperary, nobody else was involved or injured in the accident.

The other incident involved a man in his 50’s, at approximately 1:30 yesterday afternoon. He died when he crashed his car, near the Gaeltacht area of Cornamona Co. Galway. The incident did not involve any other vehicle or passengers.

The AA has warned motorists to exercise caution on the roads over the coming days. Gardaí meanwhile are appealing for any witnesses to either accident to contact them, as they continue their investigations.
