Man (40) dies when his car hits wall

A man in his forties was killed yesterday afternoon when the car he was driving left the road and hit a wall.

Gardai in Balbriggan Co Dublin are investigating the single vehicle fatal accident that occurred on the Lusk to Skerries Road yesterday at 3.30pm. The victim was last night named locally as Ira Judge (40), a father of two young sons from Donaghmede. He was described as a very popular man and an avid sports fan.

Clarification: Mill House Pub

In our city edition of Saturday, January 22, in a story headlined 'Firemen hurt as inferno engulfs pub and restaurants' we reported that a fire in Chartbusters, Lower Kilmacud Road, Stillorgan, Co Dublin, on Friday, January 21, spread to the nearby Mill House pub.

We wish to clarify that the fire did not spread to that premises and no damage was sustained. It was evacuated, as a precaution, and opened for business the next day.

We are happy to correct this error.
