Gardaí have appealed to two men who assisted the emergency services at the scene of a fatal road crash at Skibbereen in west Cork yesterday morning to contact them.

The men arrived at the scene within minutes of the crash at a roundabout on the N71 bypass at 1.45am yesterday morning.

Megan Johnston, 22, from Skibbereen died in the crash.

Two of her friends, a man and a woman, remain in a critical condition in intensive care at Cork University Hospital.

Two other men are also being treated in hospital, while another man has been released.

Gardaí are also appealing to the occupants of a Skoda Octavia car that parked at Hurley's Garage on Ilen Street moments after the crash to contact them on 023 8821 570.

They do not believe this car was connected to the crash, but say the occupants may have witnessed the crash or have important information in relation to it.
