One of the three people killed in a horror head-on road traffic collision on the N52 beside the M3 Motorway in Kells, Co. Meath on New Year’s Eve at around 4.25pm has been named as Julieanne Kehoe, a native of Craanford, near Gorey.
Ms Kehoe, a mother of three in her mid-20s, who was due to get married this year was travelling to Cavan where she is building a house.
Three children who were travelling in her car – a 12 year old boy and two baby girls – were taken to hospital where the boy’s condition is said to be ‘serious’ and the girls injuries were described as ‘not life-threatening’.
Tributes are pouring in as the tragic news is breaking in North Wexford where Julieanne is fondly remembered and her families are well-known and respected. Cllr Donal Kenny said; “She was a great mother. It is an unspeakable tragedy. We are hoping and praying the kids will be okay.”
Gardaí are appealing to witnesses, particularly any road users who were travelling in the area at the time and who may have camera footage, including dashcam, to contact Kells Garda Station on 046 9280820 the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
