A Gardai spokesperson said: “Saturday September 11, 2021 was the same day as the All Ireland football final between Mayo and Tyrone and it is likely that many Tyrone spectators would have been using the N2 returning from the game.

“Gardaí are appealing to anyone who was travelling on the N2 on Saturday September 11, 2021 between 8pm and 8.30pm and who may have witnessed this collision to come forward.

“In particular Gardaí are appealing to any road users who may have camera footage, including dash cam footage, covering the N2 near Dooley’s Pub and Restaurant between 8pm and 8.30pm to make this available to Gardaí.

“Anyone with any information is asked to contact Ardee Garda Station on (041) 6853222, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda station.”
