THE FAMILY of 24-year-old Kelly Roche, who died following a two-car collision on the Rosslare Road, have thanked the emergency crews, doctors and nurses who fought to to save her life following the horrific crash last weekend.

'They did everything they could to save Kelly,' said her uncle Shane Roche.

'Our thoughts and prayers are also with the couple in the other car,' he said, referring to Lucia and Brian Mooney, from Our Lady's Island. who were seriously injured in the crash. Brian, a teacher at Scoil Mhuire, Coolcotts, was being treated at Waterford Regional Hospital, while Lucia was taken to St. Vincents, in Dublin.

'We have been told they will both make a full recovery,' said Shane, adding that his family had had a mass said for the Mooneys.

He said he still had no idea what had caused the crash outside Larkin's Pub at Kilmracree.

'We don't know why Kelly was heading towards Rosslare that morning,' he said.
