Three people including a toddler, killed when a car hit a wall in Co Tipperary last night, are understood to be members of the one family. It happened in the Windmill Knockbulloge area on the outskirts of Cashel at around 9 o'clock last night.
The little boy's body was removed to Tipperary University Hospital in Clonmel.
He, along with a man and woman who were sitting in the back seat of the car, and who are understood to be the child's grandparents, were pronounced dead at the scene.
Another man and woman, the driver and front-seat passenger, were rushed to hospital with serious injuries and underwent emergency surgery overnight.
It's the second tragedy in the area in under a week after the deaths of four young people on Leaving Cert results night last Friday in Clonmel, just 30 kilometres from the scene of last nights crash.
Assistant news editor with the Business Post Sarah McGuinness says the road remains closed this evening and Gardaí are appealing for witnesses.
