Heartfelt tributes have been paid to a young man who died in a single-car accident in Dublin.

Described by his friends as a "true gentleman", Sean Madden (23), from Bray, died after his car hit a pole near Loughlinstown yesterday morning.

The hugely popular public relations student was taken to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.

His heartbroken parents said that their only son will be "remembered with love".

Sean, who took part in a world record five-mile ribbon chain on Bray Head last May, loved travelling.

He was uncle to two nephews whom he doted on.

He was known around Bray for his positive attitude and for always having a smile for everyone he met.

As the news broke last night, friends uploaded old photos of themselves on nights out with the sociable young man.

The one-car collision happened at 9am yesterday at the M50 and N11 merge. The road was closed for a time as emergency services attended the scene.

He was the only occupant of the car at the time.

Gardai have appealed for witnesses of the crash to contact Shankill garda station.

Road deaths last year were up for the first time since 2006.
