A young mother-of-two who was injured in a road crash on Longford's N4 bypass earlier this month has died.

The 31-year-old woman, who has been named locally as Sarah Reynolds Brady, died on Thursday afternoon at Mullingar's Midland Regional Hospital.

Mrs Brady had been seriously injured after her car was involved in a collision with an articulated lorry close to the roundabout on September 12.

Two children in her vehicle received minor injuries, while the truck driver was uninjured.

Mrs Brady was a well known and respected member of the community in Dromard, Co Longford. Local Councillor John Duffy said the local community had been left numbed by the news.

"Unfortunately, it's another tragedy for Dromard, but it's just so sad for Sarah's family," he said. "She was always such a bubbly, lovely young girl."
