An elderly man has died following an incident in west Cork yesterday evening.
The man in his 70s was involved in a single-vehicle road collision on Main Street in Skibbereen shortly after 6pm.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
It is understood that the man suffered a heart attack while driving.
Emergency services and gardaí attended the scene and the road was closed for a short period of time.
Gardaí say a post-mortem examination will determine the course of their investigation.
It follows a number of road collisions around the country this weekend.
Three people were injured in a three-car collision which occurred in North County Dublin yesterday.
They were brought to hospital after the incident in Baldoyle at around 3pm yesterday afternoon.
They are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Elsewhere, five young men were injured in a road collision in west Donegal in the early hours of yesterday morning.
The five friends were traveling in a car which struck a wall on the Meenamaragh Road at Upper Loughanure just after midnight.
None of their injuries are life-threatening and a full investigation into the cause of the single-vehicle crash has been launched by gardaí.
