A WOMAN HAS died after being found, along with another woman, seriously injured at the side of a Galway road this morning.

The two women, both aged in their early 20s, were discovered at the junction of Barna Road and Moycullen Road, about eight miles from Galway city, at about 2.20am.

A Garda spokesperson confirmed that one of the “possibilities being looked at” is that the women involved were passengers in a van that was driving past the junction, and that the women may have fallen from that vehicle.

Both received medical assistance at the scene and were taken to University Hospital Galway. One of the women was later pronounced dead.

A post mortem of her remains is to take place.

The second woman remains in a stable condition.

It’s believed that the van involved was not involved in any sort of collision prior to the incident.

The scene has been preserved and sealed pending a Garda forensic collision investigation.

No arrests have yet been made.

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them at Salthill on 091 514720 or the confidential line on 1800 666111.

They are particularly keen to talk to anyone who may have been travelling on the N59, Galway-Moycullen Road or the Barna-Moycullen Road this morning between 1.45am and 3.15am.
