A YOUNG man was killed - and a number of people were injured - in a two-car collision on Monday night.

Gardaí are investigating the fatal collision which occurred at 8.30pm at Carrowmhuineagh, Dunmore, Co Galway. 

"A 21 year old male driver was fatally injured when the car he was driving was in collision with another car; a 21-year-old male passenger received minor injuries," a garda spokesman said.

The male driver (74) of the other car and two female passengers (aged 70 and two) also received injuries, which are understood to be minor.
