A Co Wexford haulage company has entered a plea of guilty for their part in the death of two women near Thomastown in Co Kilkenny.
Nolan Transport from New Ross pleaded guilty at Wexford Circuit Criminal court regarding an incident five years ago.
The incident occurred on 19 July 2007 when a load of heavy steel coils on a lorry shifted, which lead to an accident involving the death of Vanessa McGarry and Mary Lonergan.
There were also personal injuries to James Furlong, Louise Lonergan and Gerard Corcoran.
Defence Counsel John O’Kelly, SC, told the court that Patricia Nolan, a Director at Nolan Transport, was in court to enter a plea in the case on behalf of the company.
On the application of counsel, it was agreed that the matter be adjourned to 15 January 2013 next for mention with a view to setting a date for hearing.
Vanessa McGarry, who was 31, was married to Kilkenny hurling goalkeeper James McGarry.
In March 2009, 32-year-old Rafal Luszacki, who lived in New Ross, was fined €1,500 and disqualified from driving for three years for his part in the accident.
He was driving an articulated lorry owned to Nolan Transport. He had been working for nine days for the company before the accident.
