Gardaí have appealed for witnesses in their investigation of the crash that claimed the life of 36-year-old Mungret native Patrick Walshe outside Listowel on Sunday.
Mr Walshe was killed when the motorbike he was driving crashed at Skehenerin, on the N69, roughly 2km beyond the town, in the single-vehicle collision.
The tragedy rocked Listowel and his home community of Mungret, where his family are very well-known and 'loved', according to one local representative.
It was the latest in a series of recent serious accidents on the roads of North Kerry.
Mr Walshe was the beloved son of Patrick (PJ) and Noreen of Loughanleagh, Mungret; with three siblings - brother Barry; and sisters Laura and Jessica. His remains were to be buried today (Wednesday) following Requiem Mass at noon in St Oliver Plunkett Church in Mungret. Limerick County Councillor Daniel Butler (FG) told media the community is in deep shock. "We stand with the Walshe family and honour the great man Pa was," he said.
