The one-vehicle crash happened at about 3.30pm.

Cllr Keating said: “Devastating news this evening of the tragic loss of our esteemed Sinn Féin party colleague Tim Woods.

“Affectionately know to his friends as ‘Spike’, he was a much loved and active member of his local community.

“His wit and warmth will be sorely missed by many.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this hugely painful time.

“Such tragedies put things into perspective and we should value each and every day and those around us as we really don’t know what lies in store. RIP Spike.”
