Crash father in High Court bid

A RETIRED garage owner whose two sons were killed in a car crash nearly 14 years ago has brought a High Court action for nervous shock as a result of losing his children.

Walter Doyle (59) Sparrowlands, Bree, Enniscorthy, Wexford, was unable to return to his job after the accident which claimed the lives of his sons Dermot (20) and Jim (16), the court heard yesterday.
