Fiona Geraghty, 27, tragically died in the horror smash on June 6.

The Dublin woman was one of 17 people, out of 30 passengers, who were killed while travelling from Oman to Dubai.

The Omani driver, 53, on Tuesday pleaded guilty at Dubai Traffic Court over charges of causing the wrongful death of 17 people and injuring others.

The driver reportedly told the court: "I admit to my mistake but the sun was too bright. It was shining into my eyes so I pulled down a small curtain."
