Road victim's house burgled

TWO elderly women have been killed in separate road accidents.

Gardai in Castlebar are investigating after a HGV knocked down an 80-year-old pedestrian at around 1.05pm yesterday. She was taken by ambulance to Mayo General Hospital in Castlebar where she was later pronounced dead.

And an 83-year-old woman, named locally as Mary Carroll, of Glanduff, Kiltoom, Co Roscommon, was killed yesterday after the car she was driving struck a wall just miles from her home.

She died at the Portiuncula Hospital in Ballinasloe around 9pm last night.

Callous thieves tried to break into Ms Carroll's home shortly after the accident. "She wasn't even cold when they broke in," said neighbour and local councillor Paddy Kilduff.

Accused sold drugs to gardai

A WEST Dublin man has admitted selling cannabis to undercover gardai three times near his home in the space of three months.

Wayne Brady (35) had the case against him adjourned for sentencing when he appeared in Blanchardstown District Court on drug dealing charges.

Brady, of Lealand Road, Clondalkin, is charged with possession of cannabis with intent to sell or supply at Lealand Road on May 1, 9 and July 17, 2012. The total value of the drugs was €150.

Judge David McHugh adjourned the case.

A taste worth dying for?

The unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas has died – of a heart attack.

John Alleman (52), collapsed while waiting at a bus stop in front of the diner.

The medically-themed restaurant is famous for its huge hamburgers, extra-fat milkshakes and fries cooked in lard. It uses the tagline "taste worth dying for".
