Two teenagers were airlifted to hospital following the crash yesterday afternoon
A 39-year-old man killed in a crash in North Cork yesterday has been named locally as Patrick McMahon.
The crash, involving a van and a tractor, happened at Ballincurrig in North Cork at around 1pm yesterday afternoon.
The accident happened near Buttevant on the Liscarroll Road near the old Crossroads pub.
39-year-old Patrick McMahon was killed in the collision.
His 15 year old daughter is in a critical condition in hospital, while a 17 year old boy is seriously injured.
Both were passengers in the car.
The tractor driver - a man in his late 20s - was uninjured.
The man's partner who was following behind in a car came across the scene moments later.
Local councilor John Paul O'Shea says there are a lot of tractors on the roads at the moment.
"It is summertime so we have a lot of agricultural machinery travelling on our roads," he said.
"North Cork is one of the heartlands of the agricultural community.
"But unfortunately for this incident, there was a tragic loss here and I think the community in North Cork are very much grieving that loss this morning."
Gardaí have carried out a forensic examination of the scene and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
