A woman who died in a single vehicle crash in Co Donegal last night has been named locally as Dawn Croke.

Mrs Croke, who was in her 30s, died after she was hit by a car while walking along the Chapel Road in Dungloe at around 6:30pm.

A six-year-old girl who was also involved in the incident remains in a serious condition in hospital this afternoon.

Dawn Croke was a teacher at Rosses Community School, and a mother of two.

Her school has offered its condolences to her family and friends, and has described her as a wonderful teacher and friend.

In a post on social media, school officials said: "Our school wish to send our love and support to the family, school and local community at this sad time.

"We, the school community, remember with love and fondness our colleague Dawn."

Local TD Pat the Cope Gallagher also paid tribute to Dawn.

The Fianna Fáil TD said: “As her father had before her, Dawn taught in the Rosses Community School where she was admired by both staff and students. I have no doubt that the whole school community is devastated.

“It is impossible to comprehend how the life of someone with such a vibrant personality and who has contributed so much good in our locality can be lost in such tragic circumstances."
