A man was killed in a motorcycle accident last night.
The victim, named locally as Brian Kane (38), of Kernanstown, Co Carlow, died after the motorcycle he was driving was in collision with a 4x4 vehicle on the N80 at Kernanstown around 7.30pm.
It is understood he became trapped under the vehicle.
The road was closed for several hours last night pending a forensic examination.
A close friend described Mr Kane as a very likeable man who was into motorcycles since he was a young boy.
"He always had bikes since he was young. I just saw him pass by on his bike today," he told the Irish Independent last night.
