Cllr Sheila McQuaid said: “I am extremely saddened by this death. The whole town is shocked by this tragic accident.
“I would like to pass on my deepest condolences to the family and friends of the person who has died. I hope the other three people in this accident will be able to make a recovery from the injuries they have sustained.
“Yet again we have seen the fatal consequences of the dangers on our roads.
“It was only last week that I raised the issue of this dangerous junction with Road Service who are looking to put a slip road in place where this accident has happened. Sadly, this accident happened before the Road Service were able to upgrade this junction. I hope they will now prioritise this work to improve safety at such a dangerous junction.”
