The father of a young woman killed a short distance from her home in a road traffic collision has pleaded with drivers to 'expect the unexpected'.

Michael O'Neill will be attending a Mass for 'World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims' in Drogheda today along with the Minister for Transport Shane Ross and Moyagh Murdock, chief executive of the Road Safety Authority (RSA).

Tomorrow will be the 17th anniversary of the accident that claimed the lives of Fiona O'Neill (21) and her boyfriend Dominic Wogan (23) at Monasterboice, Co Louth.

"Expect the unexpected," said Mr O'Neill.

"I would not wish what has happened to us on anyone. We want no one else to go through what we have."

To date in 2018, a total of 130 families have lost a loved one in a road traffic collision.
