Gardai are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision between a motorcycle and two cars, which occurred on the N11 between Wexford Town and Enniscorthy yesterday evening shortly before 5pm.

A 46-year-old male motorcyclist was killed after his bike collided with two cars.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his body was removed to University Hospital Waterford where the post mortem is to be arranged.
