A 65-year-old man has died in a three-vehicle collision in Mayo.

It’s understood the man is from the East Mayo area.

The collision between two cars and a lorry occurred on the N5 at Swinford, close to the Kiltimagh Road/Applegreen Junction.

Another person has been taken to hospital following the collision.

Their condition is currently unknown.

The road is closed between the junction for Kiltimagh and the Kilkelly junction.

Gardai are advising motorists to take an alternative route if possible – if travelling east or west. Possible alternatives are through Kiltimagh and Foxford. Also for people travelling to the airport, they should go through Swinford town and back out onto the N5.

The road will remain closed for some time.
