GARDAÍ IN GALWAY are renewing their appeal for information in relation to a fatal two-car collision that left two women dead last week.

The collision occurred at Station Road in Ballinasloe at around 5.40pm on Thursday 22 March.

Two female pedestrians in their 50s, named locally as Maureen Dooley and Deirdre Kilmartin, were fatally injured when they were struck by a car which had collided with a second car.

They were pronounced dead at the scene and their bodies were removed to Portiuncula Hospital.
