Driver released without charge after mother of former Dublin GAA star killed in city crash

A MAN IN his 30s who was arrested in connection with the death of a pedestrian hit by a car in Dublin city centre yesterday has been released without charge.









Gardai this afternoon confirmed that the man, who was the driver of the car, has been released from Store Street Garda Station where he was being questioned.



A file is to be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.



A mother-of-four was killed when a car mounted a pavement alongside a city Luas line and struck pedestrians.



Nurse Frances McCarthy (56), the mother of former Dublin minor hurling star Brian McCarthy, had just finished shopping in Arnotts when the car careered on to the path.



Mrs McCarthy, from Knocklyon, was walking with her sister when she was struck. She was rushed to the Mater Hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.

Her son Brian played midfiled for Dublin against Galway in the 2011 minor All Ireland hurling final.

Another man was injured in the incident.
