Myles Harty (20) died instantly in the crash between Askeaton and Rathkeale early on Saturday morning.

Mr Harty was the front seat passanger in a car which left the road and hit a pole on the R518 at around 1am.

A teenager was arrested at the scene and questioned by gardaí in relation to the crash. He was subsequently released without charge and a file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Mr Harty had been due to marry his fiancée Kate Quilligan on Saturday afternoon.
