Tributes as a Limerick crash victim named as the brother of the Mayo footballer and fitness coach

A man and woman killed in a horror accident in Co Limerick have been identified locally as Brian Mullin and Sharon Ryan, both from Co Mayo.

The couple, both in their 30s, lost their lives when the car they were in collided with a van on the N21 between Adare and Patrickswell at around 9:25pm on Sunday.

Brian from Ballinrobe is the older brother of Mayo footballer Oisín Mullin and had recently returned from the US where he had lived for years.

Oisín Mullin and his brother Jarlath played for John McBride’s GAA Club in Chicago this summer and are returning home today.

Sharon Ryan from Carras, Co. Mayo was well known in North Galway as a strength and conditioning coach for numerous sports clubs including Tuam/Cortoon and Kilkerrin/Clonberne and was a personal fitness trainer through her own company, Phoenix Fitness.

Cllr Michael Burke said there was a sense of shock and stunned silence in the area since news of the deaths reached Ballinrobe and the wider community this morning.

“It’s just appalling. It is the worst nightmare of any community or family.

“Words just can’t explain it. My condolences go out to both families involved and their wider community of friends.

“What was supposed to be a great day celebrating football – with Brian’s family loving the game so much – brings this all down and brings so much sadness to two wonderful families.

“Today there is just stunned silence from everyone here,” Cllr Burke told Independent.ie.

The occupants of the van, a man and woman in their 20s and a young boy, were taken to Limerick University Hospital for treatment but are believed to be unharmed.
