Man for court over Wexford crash


A man is due in court today charged in connection with a fatal crash in Courtown, Co Wexford last month.

His two companions managed to swim ashore but Mr Farrell, who was in the back of the vehicle, died.

The 19-year-old suspect was arrested in the Wexford area yesterday over the crash and taken to Gorey Garda station.

He will appear before Gorey District Court this morning.
