TRAGEDY struck in Cootehill just before 6pm on Sunday evening when a young man from Co Tyrone was killed when the car he was travelling in hit a wall and pier at Lisnasaran on the Station Road.

Gareth Wilson, aged 20, from Crotty Road, Tattyreagh, south of Omagh, was a back-seat passenger in the red BMW when it struck a wall on Station Road, Cootehill. The driver and a front-seat passenger, both in their early 20s and from the Omagh area, were also injured in the single-vehicle collision, which was reported at about 5.55pm.

Mr Wilson was declared dead at the scene and his body was taken to Cavan General Hospital for a post mortem.
