A man in his 20s arrested by Gardaí investigating a fatal traffic collision in Bundoran in the early hours of yesterday morning  in which two people died and three sustained injuries has been released without charge and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The Peugeot 306 car in which six people were travelling it hit a wall and then a lamp-post at Eastend in the seaside village of Bundoran at 3.25am yesterday morning.

The six people in the northern-registered car had been out socialising earlier in the evening and were understood to be travelling to the village of Belleek in Co Fermanagh where some of them lived.

Two men in their 20s seriously injured in the collision are continuing to receive treatment at Sligo University Hospital, while a woman in her 20s critically injured in the incident has been transferred from Sligo University Hospital to the Beaumont Hospital in Dublin.

Post-mortems are due to be carried out on the two deceased at the mortuary in Sligo University Hospital today.

They have been named locally as Shiva Devine, who was in her 20s, who lived in Beleek but was originally from Donegal, and Conor McAleer from county Fermanagh.

An incident room has been established at Ballyshannon Garda Station and investigating Gardaí are liaising with the PSNI as part of their enquiries.

Gardaí are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward. Anyone with information is asked to contact Ballyshannon Garda Station on 071-9858530, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
