A newly married father of two was killed yesterday when his car crashed while he was on the way to work, writes Luke Byrne.

Brian Keane (25) married his wife Sarah Mahon just three months ago. The couple had two young daughters and she is expecting their third child.

Mr Keane, from Clogher, Claremorris, Co Mayo, died in a single-car collision at 7 yesterday morning.

The incident happened at Belcarra, around 10km from Castlebar. It is believed that Mr Keane lost control of the car and it crashed into a wall.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his body was removed to Mayo General Hospital for a post-mortem.

He was described as an enthusiastic sportsman who played for his local Ballyglass FC football club.

Mr Keane is survived by his wife and their two daughters, Maria and Tara.
