An ambulance rushed to the scene shortly afterwards and alerted gardai.

It's understood the vehicle in which he was travelling collided with a ditch.

His body was removed to Loughlinstown Hospital. A post mortem is expected to be carried out tomorrow morning.

The road was closed to facilitate a forensic examination and has since reopened.
