Editorial: Tragic day as more die on our roads

It's a black day for another community and heartbroken families mourning the loss of four teenagers in such tragic circumstances.

Our hearts go out to the families of all those who died in the horrific car road crash during this time of unimaginable grief.

Another teenager was seriously injured in the accident and is being treated in hospital.

There have been dramatic improvements in road safety in the past number of years.

That the death toll has reduced will be of small comfort to all those who loved the young people killed in the Kerry tragedy.

Memories of the crash in Donegal which claimed the lives of eight people are still very raw for us all.

It's every parent's worst nightmare to get that knock on the door to hear the news their child is dead.

Three families were faced with that grim scene.

It is a terrible tragedy for all concerned.
