A 25-year-old Irish woman who died in a car accident in Australia will be laid to rest this week.

Sarah Kelly was killed in the crash in Perth, and will be buried in her hometown of Ballinasloe on Thursday.

Sarah, originally from Ballinasloe, Co. Galway, had moved to Perth about two years ago, where she worked as a hairdresser.

It's understood that she had recently applied for permanent residency in Australia and was a member of her local camogie club.

Southern Districts GAC Perth paid tribute to Ms Kelly following her passing and called her "a wonderful member of our camogie team".

"Sarah joined our club this year and brought with her energy and enthusiasm, a beaming smile and infectious laugh," it said in a Facebook post.

Sarah is mourned by her parents, Mary and Pat, her two brothers and two sisters, her grandmother and extended family.
