The HSE is to provide enhanced services in the Donegal area to offer emotional and psychological support to people affected by a car crash which claimed the lives of four men on Sunday.
Tributes have been paid to Shaun Harkin, Míchéal Roarty, John Harley and Daniel Scott.
The four friends, who were aged in their 20s, had been travelling in a Toyota Corolla hatchback when it crashed on a minor road near Machaire Rabhartaigh (Magheraroarty) in west Donegal.
In a statement, the Health Service Executive extended sympathy to the families and friends of the victim and said its main priority is to offer support to the bereaved families and it will provide each of them with details of this.
However, the HSE says that the impact of the tragedy has extended beyond the immediate families to the broader community and in this regard it has been liaising with the local community and will now be enhancing its services.
People who wish to use the services are asked to contact their local GP, who can advise them on the supports available.
The funerals of the four men will take place on Thursday.
The first funeral, that of 22-year-old Shaun Harkin, will take place in Gort an Choirce (Gortahork) where requiem mass will be celebrated at 10am.
Míchéal Roarty’s funeral mass will be celebrated at 11.30am in Dún Lúiche (Dunlewy).
The funeral mass of John Harley, 24, will take place at 1pm in An Fál Carrach (Falcarragh) followed at 2.30pm by the funeral of 23-year-old Daniel Scott in Gort an Choirce (Gortahork).
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Milford Garda Station on 074-9153060 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
The deaths of the four men bring to ten the number of people who have died on the roads since Thursday.
