An Irish couple knocked down and killed in Italy have been named as Paul and Mary Reilly from Kilmore in Co Wexford.
They were holidaying in Rome when they were hit by a car yesterday at lunchtime yesterday.
The Department of Foreign Affairs says is providing consular assistance to the family of the couple who were aged 59 and 60.
Rome Correspondent with the Daily Wire, Bree Dail says it happened at a very busy junction.
"Paul and Mary O'Reilly, both 60 and 59, were struck while crossing that road on the pedestrian side," she said.
"Investigations are ongoing, it does seem like the individual who hit them - a man around 59-years-old - stopped, got out of the car and started to perform emergency actions.
"There is an investigation ongoing to whether or not he crossed through a red light. The intersection itself has light there for pedestrians. It is going to be an ongoing investigation, especially because it's very close to the presidential palace."
