Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to come forward following a fatal crash in Finglas in north Dublin last night.

The incident took place on the Old North Road in Finglas at around 8.30pm on Sunday night.

The driver, aged in his mid-20s, died when the car he was travelling in struck a pillar.

A male passenger also in his 20s was taken to James Connolly Memorial Hospital with what gardaí have described as non-life-threatening injuries.

The road was closed last night while a forensic examination was carried out, but has since reopened.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward, in particular any motorists who were travelling on the R135 last night and may have dashcam footage.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Finglas Garda Station on 01 6667500, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
