Gardaí are renewing their appeal for witnesses after two men in their 20's died following a single vehicle road collision on the Killala Road in Ballina last night.

The collision occurred at about 11.15 pm when a car, carrying three men, collided with a tree near the Costcutter store on the Killala Road.

One man in his late 20's was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other two men - also in their 20's - were taken to Mayo University Hospital where one died later, while the third man remains in a critical condition in hospital.

The names of the deceased have not yet been released, but they are both understood to be from the Ballina area.

The road was closed for a time to allow for a forensic examination to be carried out but has since reopened to traffic.

Gardai are also appealing to the drivers of any vehicles that may have passed through the townland of Kilmoremoy, close to the Costcutters Supermarket, between 10.20pm and 11.15pm, and who may have dash-cam footage, to contact Ballina Garda Station on 096-20560 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
