The collision occurred on the N11 between Wexford Town and Enniscorthy on Thursday evening shortly before 5pm.

A 46-year-old male motorcyclist was fatally injured when his motorcycle was involved in a collision with two cars.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his body was removed to University Hospital Waterford where a post mortem is to be arranged.

Three other people involved in the collision, a man and woman, both mid 30s and a young boy were taken to Wexford General Hospital as a precaution. No other injuries were reported.

A Garda Family Liaison Officer has been appointed in this case.

The N11 was closed at Ballyhogue for a period of time to facilitate Garda Forensic Collision Investigators. It has since reopened.
