CORK LORD MAYOR Catherine Clancy has been injured in a two car collision close to the city centre.

The incident occurred at the junction of Pearse and Lough Road in Cork at 4am.

Both drivers and three passengers involved in the incident were brought to Cork University Hospital.

However, their injuries are not thought to be serious.

The former councillor lost her seat last night in the sixth and final count, and became the second Labour Lord Mayor to do so.

Dublin’s Oisín Quinn failed to be re-elected yesterday afternoon.

Clancy, sister-in-law of Junior Minister Kathleen Lynch, became a member of Cork City Council in 2003, and held her seat for more than a decade until last night.
