A crash in Co Donegal has claimed the lives of four young men.
Gardaí and emergency services were called to the scene of the single-vehicle crash on a local road near Magheraroarty in Gortahork just before 9pm last night.
All four men in the car, believed to be in their 20s, died at the scene.
It has been preserved for a technical examination and the road remains closed this morning with local diversions in place.
It is not known at this stage how the crash happened and investigations are ongoing.
A Garda source said last night: “It’s a devastating scene. All four lads are from the locality and would be well-known in the area.”
The scene of the crash is close to where a number of other fatal accidents have taken place over the years.
Sinn Féin TD for Donegal, Pearse Doherty, said there was a “cloud of sadness over the area.”
“Devastating news from Gaoth Dobhair tonight. A cloud of sadness over the area. Thoughts and prayers are with those involved and their families,” he said on social media.
