Two men have died following separate collisions in Limerick and Offaly.

A 27-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene of a two-vehicle collision at Templeglantine in Co Limerick this morning.

The collision between a car, which the man was driving, and a rigid truck happened on the N21 at around 10.10am.

The victim was treated by emergency service personnel, but was pronounced dead at the scene shortly afterwards.

The driver of the truck, a man in his 70s, was not injured.

Separately, a 35-year-old man has died following a crash near Banagher in Co Offaly.
