A MAN IN his 20s arrested in connection with a fatal crash in Donegal in the early hours of yesterday morning has been released without charge.

A file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecution.

The man had presented himself to gardaí following the incident that happened at around 3.25am Eastend in Bundoran.

A man and a woman in their 20s died after the car they were travelling in collided with a wall.

The two victims have been named locally as Conall McAleer and Shiva Devine.

Two other men in their 20s who were seriously injured in the collision are continuing to receive treatment at Sligo University Hospital.

Another woman in her 20s who was critically injured was being transferred to Beaumont Hospital last night.
