A man has been killed in a crash on the Castleblayney to Dundalk road.
The incident involving two cars and a lorry took place at around 10.30am on the N53.
The driver of one of the cars, a man in his 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene earlier today.
His body has been removed to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda for a post mortem examination.
The collision happened between the border and Hackballscross this morning. It's not known if anyone else was injured in the crash.
Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information to come forward. They're particularly interested in hearing from anyone in the area on the N53 at the time and who may have dashcam footage.
