A WOMAN IN her 80s has died following a fatal two-car collision in Co Mayo last month.

The crash occurred on 24 September at Liscosker, Kilkelly in Co Mayo at approximately 4pm in the afternoon.

The collision caused one of the vehicles involved overturn onto its roof.

Both drivers and five passengers were removed from the two vehicles and were taken to Mayo General Hospital.

One woman, aged in her 80s, was in serious condition following the crash and she passed away on 4 October. 

All other occupants of the two vehicles have since been released from hospital.
