A father of two and a motorcyclist have died in separate road crashes in Kerry and Dublin.

Andrew Davis, originally from Wales but who was living in Knocknagree, Co Cork, died in Kerry General Hospital yesterday afternoon from injuries he sustained in a crash.

Mr Davis, who was in his 40s and worked at St Columbanus Hospital in Killarney, was driving his car when it was in a collision with a lorry in the village of Rathmore.

The lorry driver was uninjured.

Meanwhile, a motorcyclist in his 30s also died yesterday following a collision with a lorry near an industrial park in west Dublin.

The man, who is believed to be from Tallaght, south Dublin, was pronounced dead at the scene after the motorcycle he was driving was in collision with a lorry on the Park West Road in Clondalkin at around 12.45pm.

The name of the lorry driver, who was not injured, has not been released.
