    Garda and fireman die on duty

    A garda officer and a fire fighter lost their lives in the early hours of Sunday when they were struck by a car while dealing with a road accident in Co. Limerick. At around 5:00am the emergency services were called to the scene of a single vehicle accident on the N69 near Askeaton and, shortly after they arrived, the two men were struck by another car. The victims were named as Garda Brian Kelleher (46), a native of Mallow, Co. Cork who was stationed at Macroom, Co. Limerick, and fireman Michael Liston (47) from Foynes.

    A youth in his late teens was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving but was later released and a file is prepared for the DPP.

    RIP Brothers.

    My sincere condolences to those agencies involved and to the Kelleher and Liston families for their sad loss.

    Sleep with angels, Brian and Michael.
