Gardaí continue their appeal for witnesses to a fatal car crash on the N4 just outside Mullingar on Saturday morning, June 28, in which three women and a child lost their lives.
Fawny Akenbor (45 ), her cousin Queenent Esezobor (43 ), along with Pat Jeeti (42 ) and her 10-year-old daughter Jessica Jeeti are believed to have been travelling from Dublin to their home in Longford town on Saturday morning after an overnight evangelical prayer meeting in Dublin.
