Tributes are being paid to a popular academic and athlete from Co Carlow who died in a car crash in Galway earlier this week.
Cormac Kinsella from Ballon was confirmed as the person at the centre of the fatal single-vehicle incident on the N59 Moycullen Road, close to Galway city, just after 5am on Monday morning.
Ballon National School issued the following message this morning to those involved with the school; “On behalf of the staff and the wider school community, we wish to extend our heartfelt sympathy to Aisling and Michael Kinsella and family, on the sad passing of their beloved son Cormac our past pupil and brother of Grace in 6th class.
