A young woman killed in a three-vehicle crash has been described as someone who was "full of life and always laughing" by friends.

Aisling Dolan (19), from New Ross, Co Wexford, was killed and her mother was seriously injured in a collision on the N11 at Scarawalsh, outside Enniscorthy, on Tuesday.

She was a front-seat passenger in a black Peugeot hatchback involved in the crash, which happened around midday.

"Aisling touched all our lives so much and we are completely heartbroken," one friend said.

"Today my life was turned upside down. Love and will miss you always, Ais," another friend said.

The young victim's mother was airlifted to Tallaght Hospital in Dublin, where she remains in a serious condition.

Two other vehicles, including a van and a pick-up truck, were involved in the collision.

The drivers of the two vehicles, and the passenger in the van, were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

The crash happened between the Scarawalsh roundabout and the Blackstoops roundabout.

Gardaí have appealed for any witnesses to the collision to contact them at Enniscorthy garda station on 053 9242580, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666111 or any Garda station.

Local Sinn Féin councillor Johnny Mythen, from Enniscorthy, said the death of the teenager was "a tragedy" for her family. "It's the last kind of phone call anyone wants to get. The whole town is in shock."
