A man who was killed in a two car collision outside Mullingar last Friday has been named 66-year-old John Quinn from Edgeworthstown.

The accident happened at around lunchtime on the N4 at Knockdrin, Mullingar, Co Westmeath.

It’s understood a mother and three children were also injured in the collision, two of whom were brought to the Midlands Regional Hospital for treatment.

As crash scene investigators cordoned off the scene on Friday afternoon, lengthy tailbacks could be seen along the N4 following the implementation of diversions.

The scene of last Friday’s accident was also close to the site of another accident on Easter Sunday in which a man in his 80s died.
