Five young men have been seriously injured in separate road accidents overnight.

The men, three aged 19 and two 20-year-olds, were involved in crashes in Cork and Tipperary less than two days after four brothers and a friend were killed in a collision.

The first accident, where two men aged 19 and 20 were injured, happened at Lehenaghmore Hill, Togher at 11.30pm last night.

The men were in one car and no other vehicle was involved.

They are being treated at Cork University Hospital.

In the second crash three men, two aged 19 and one 20, were in a car which crashed in Holycross village in Tipperary at 2.30am today.

The men were also in one car and no other vehicle was involved.

They are being treated at Clonmel Hospital.

Meanwhile, arrangements are being made for the funerals of three brothers Darren, David and Ryan Doyle, and their friend Lee Bryan who were killed while driving in his maroon Honda Civic to Tullamore on Friday evening.

The car was in a crash with a minibus on the R420 road from Portarlington.

The men were aged from 17 to 27.

Later, in a third accident this weekend, a man and a woman in their 20s were injured.

The crash happened Knockbrandon, Gorey, Co Wexford at about 7.30am.

The pair were in a car and no other vehicle was involved.

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses to any of the accidents to come forward.
