€100,000 Awarded to Family of Mother and Daughter Killed in Road Accident

The family of a mother and child who were killed in a car accident in 2006 have been granted compensation of more than €100,000. Yvonne Mahony (24) and Bobb-Ann (2) were killed after a car struck the one in which they were travelling in at Lodge Cross, County Galway in July 2006.

The claim for compensation was taken against Galway County Council by Yvonne’s mother Mary, who she said failed to maintain clear vision at the junction by not pruning or cutting down trees which obstructed drivers’ views. She also claimed that they failed to erect appropriate yield and stop signs.
