They happened in Fairview and just outside Brittas.

A woman in her 20s died, when the car which she was a passenger in collided with a pole in Fairview, at the Malahide road junction, at around 1.50am this morning.

Three others in the car at the time were taken to hospital with serious injuries. One of them, a 26-year-old man, is said to be in a critical condition.
