The names of the two young people who died in the car crash between Slane and Navan today have been confirmed locally.

Out of respect to their families, Meath Live will not name them at this point.

We can confirm that both were in their twenties, both lived in Navan, the female was heavily involved in sport, while the male was a past pupil of St Patrick’s classical school in the town.

The crash happened around 1.30 pm and Navan Gardai would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or ho may have dashcam footage of it.
