Young woman killed after being hit by a car in Co Kerry

The incident occurred yesterday evening in the village of Glenflesk.

At around quarter past 7 last night, the 26 year old woman was knocked down on the N22 at Glenflesk village.

She was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later, and the Coroner was notified.

Her body was removed to University Hospital Kerry, where a post mortem examination will take place.

The road was closed for a time to facilitate a Garda forensic examination, but has since reopened.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses.
