A man has died following a crash in Clare.
Shortly before 3 o'clock Gardai were called to the scene of a single vehicle collision on the R352 near the village of Mountshannon.
It's understood the car left the road and hit a ditch.
The driver, a man in his 60s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Another man in his 60s - who was a passenger in the car - was taken to hospital with injuries which are not believed to be life threatening.
Gardai say the local coroner has been notified and local diversions are in place.
Anyone with any information is being asked to contact Gardai.
