The accused was travelling from the Waterford motorway and had four girls as passengers, Mr Boland said.

Travelling in the opposite direction was a white transporter van with a driver and passenger, both of whom were Polish.

“Unfortunately, the four passengers in the car were killed almost instantly,” Mr Boland said.

Mr Kearney herself was badly injured in the accident.

Gardai arrived at the scene and took measurements. Four months later, Ms Kearney made a statement but had very little recollection of the accident.

She had been on a provisional driving licence at the time.

It was the prosecution’s case that although the car she was driving was in sound mechanical condition and the tyres all had good tread, “some were not at the correct inflated level” and this combined with the heavy load in the car caused it to swerve and “she was unable to control it, and that led to the fatal accident.”
