Vincent's little girl Estlin, suffered a fatal brain injury and did not survive the collision.

Vincent has been driving his little girl to a créche in Inagh.

Today, a friend of the family set up an online fundraising page in order to fund Vincent's recovery.

The fundraising page contains an explaination which reads:

“The doctors have said that Vinnie’s recovery will be a long road and it’s impossible to tell how his long-term condition will be.

“Many people have been asking how they can help, so we here in Ennistymon have set up this fund to provide Amy with some financial assistance for the difficult times ahead and Vinnie’s rehabilitation.  “

Since setting up the page, €15,915 has been raised by 385 supporters.
