Minister O’Dowd said:  

“Three families are facing heartbreak and loss following these latest tragedies on our roads.  I want to extend my sincere condolences to all those impacted.  Too many lives have been cut short or forever changed by serious injury as a result of road traffic collisions and too many people are left to deal with the devastating consequences.  I am appealing to all road users to be mindful of others using our roads and exercise care and caution when travelling.”
