A Connemara campaigner is calling for a dangerous road stretch in Rossaveal to be addressed following a fatal road crash in the area last night.

15 year old Leah Feeney from Clynagh in Carraroe was killed in the collision which occurred at around a quarter to 10 last night.

The student of Scoil Colmcille in Inverin was walking with a friend near Terry’s pub in Rossaveal when she was struck by a car.

Family friend and Glór na Tuaithe spokesperson Pádraic an Táilliúra Ó Conghaile says this is not the first such incident in the area.

He’s calling for proper pathing and lighting to make the area safer.
