The 17-year-old victim of a horrific car crash in Co Kilkenny has been remembered as a “gentle soul”. 

Cian Mooney was the passenger in the car that was involved in a single-car collision at Dowling on Wednesday evening.

A Garda spokesman said the teenager was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident that left two other people in hospital.

One of the men remains in a serious but stable condition and the second has injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.
