A 22 year old motorcyclist from Gorey who was in a critical condition from injuries sustained in a serious road traffic collision on the N2, in Co. Louth, last Saturday, has since passed away. He is named as Finlay Power from Annagh, Hollyfort, Gorey.

Finlay Power (22) was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda and had been in a critical condition following a collision between the motorcycle he was travelling on and a car.


The driver of the car, a man in his late 30s, and a passenger, a man in his mid-60s, were treated at the scene.

Finlay was son of James and Catherine Power and a past pupil of Coláiste Bhride, Carnew. He had been a member of Gorey Civil Defence for the past two years and had attended a training session with the group the evening before the accident.
