Another two males have also been hospitalised, but their lives aren’t in danger.

The three-car crash happened on the Ardee Link Road, just off the M1 at Richardstown, Dunleer, at about 8.10am.

Their bodies have been removed to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda, where post mortem examinations will take place.
