A MAN WHO was critically injured after a car crashed outside a west Dublin church where a funeral was taking place has died in hospital.

Several people were injured after a driver struck multiple pedestrians when he lost control of his car outside the Immaculate Conception Church in Clondalkin on 25 June.

It is understood the driver was a priest involved in the funeral, who Gardaí say fell ill prior to the incident.

In a statement this afternoon, Gardaí confirmed that a 78 year-old man hurt in the crash died in Tallaght Hospital on Tuesday.

A post-mortem was expected to take place yesterday, although it is not yet known if this has been carried out.
