The city of Singapore

Consular assistance has been offered to the family of an Irish man killed in Singapore earlier this week.

Donough Keane, originally from Dungarvan in County Waterford, died on Tuesday when the taxi he was travelling in was involved in a collision.

A graduate from the University of Limerick, where he studied electronic engineering, the 41-year-old is reported to have been travelling home from Changi airport after a weekend in Japan with friends.

Originally from Co Waterford, Mr Keane lived in Australia for a number of years before moving to Singapore where he worked as a director with the Asian communications group Singtel.

The Department of Foreign Affairs said it was offering consular assistance to the family of Mr Keane.
