Fallen tree kills Westmeath woman

The scene of yesterday's accident

The 23-year-old woman who died from injuries incurred when her car was hit by a falling tree on the Ballymahon Road in Mullingar yesterday (Wednesday) has been named as Aisling Maguire.

She was taken to Mullingar hospital at around 4pm, and gardaí said she later died from her injuries.

The deceased is from Ballymacallen - between Moyvore and Ballymore in county Westmeath - and worked as a care assistant at Newbrook Nursing Home. 

She was also involved in the GAA, serving as assistant secretary of the Fr Dalton's hurling club, a sister club of Ballymore. 

Dale Greenwood, chairman of the Ballymore GAA club, paid tribute to Aisling, who he described as "a beautiful young woman who has been taken away from her family and friends far too early.

"She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting her," said Mr Greenwood, who works as Group Business Manager for the Celtic Media Group, the parent company of the Westmeath Independent. 

A tribute was also posted on the Westmeath Ladies GAA facebook page. The message read: "Deepest sympathies to the family of Aisling Maguire from Moyvore, a young life taken in such a freak accident. May she rest in peace."
