GARDAÍ IN LIMERICK are appealing for witnesses, after two motorcyclists died in separate incidents just before 8pm yesterday evening.

At around 7.30pm, a man in his 50s sustained serious injuries when his motorcycle struck a roundabout at Quinn’s Cross in Mungret.

He was treated at the scene, and taken by ambulance to University Hospital Limerick where he was pronounced dead just a short time later.

The scene of the crash is currently being preserved for technical examination, and local traffic diversions are in place.

Just 10 minutes later at around 7.40pm, a man in his 20s suffered serious injuries when his motorcycle left the road at O’Malley Park.

Again, he was treated at the scene but later pronounced dead in hospital. That scene is also being preserved and the coroner has been notified of both incidents.

Anyone with information in relation to either of these crashed is urged to contact Roxboro Road Garda Station on 061 214 340, or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
