Go fund me page set up for children of accident victim

Claire Bann who was killed in a traffic accident last night in Drumlish.

A go fund me page has been set up for the children of Claire Bann who was killed in a road traffic accident on Thursday night in Drumlish, Co. Longford.

Claire, aged 34 and the mother of four, was living in Dromod at the time of her death and has close links to the Ballinamore and Aughnasheelin areas.

The post on the go fund me page reads:

'Claire Bann tragically passed away last night leaving behind four wonderful children. I'd like to raise money to help pay for Christmas presents for claire's kids. Her children meant everything to her. They've been through so much and I'm hoping this is one thing we can do for them. Any donation would be gratefully accepted. Thank you for reading this.'

Claire was fatally injured when the car she was driving collided with two other cars on the R198 at Cloonagh near Drumlish at 7:20pm last night.

She had been travelling from the Drumlish direction and had just passed Mulleady's Waste Management facility along the busy road when tragedy struck.

Three others injured in the collision were removed by ambulance to Mullingar and Tullamore Midland Regional Hospitals.

One of the injured is also believed to be a woman from the Drumlish area.
