A 20-year-old man has appeared in court charged in connection with a crash that killed three people.
Keith Lennon of Forest Park, Dromintee, South Armagh faces a charge of dangerous driving causing death and failing to report the crash to gardaí.
This two-car collision happened on the N1 at Carrickarnon near Dundalk in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The crash claimed the lives of three people - 88-year-old Mary Faxton and her 58-year-old son Kevin, as well as Brian Magill who was in his 20s.
Keith Lennon appeared before Dundalk district court this morning.
His parents and four grandparents were present in court.
He has been charged with dangerous driving causing death and failing to report the crash to gardaí as soon as possible.
The 20-year-old was refused bail after gardaí objected on a number of grounds including the seriousness of the charge.
He will appear before Cloverhill District Court this Thursday.
