A woman in her 70s has died following a road crash in Spain yesterday.

It is understood that the woman, from Gortahork in Co Donegal, was holidaying with family when the crash occurred.

She was taken to hospital for treatment but later died from injuries sustained in the crash.

Local councillor Seamus Ó Domhnaill said the community was "devastated".

"She was very well known in the area," he added.

The Department of Foreign Affairs said it had not yet received a report on the incident.

Meanwhile, a pedestrian is in a critical condition following a collision in Dublin.

Gardaí are investigating the incident which occurred on the Navan Road shortly before 10pm last night. Diversions were in place between the Baggot Road Junction and the Ashtown roundabout. A technical examination of the scene was carried out by officers.
