An appeal for information has been launched by local Gardaí after a man died in a road traffic accident in County Carlow this morning.
A man was walking when he was struck by an SUV on the Castledermot Road in Tullow at around 4.30am. His body has been taken to University Hospital Waterford where a post mortem examination will be carried out.
It happened in an area known locally as cannonsquarter and it’s approximately 2 kilometers from Tullow.
Investigators carried out an examination of the scene this morning and the road has since re-opened.
Inspector Audrey Dormer from Carlow Gardaí spoke to our Dean Egan for KCLR news earlier.
