The man, who was in his early 70s, was fatally injured.

A garda spokesperson said his body has been removed from the scene and taken to Midlands Regional Hospital, where a post-mortem examination will be carried out.

The second driver, a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital but his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
