The rear seat passenger, aged 21, sustained serious injuries and is in a stable condition in Sligo General hospital. Gardaí said both roads are closed while garda forensic collision investigators examine the scenes.

Police in the North also confirmed that 17-year-old Keelan Mullan died following a two-car collision.
