The 23 year old Donegal man who was driving the car in which seven young men died will appear in court again today.

Shaun Kelly of Hill Road, Buncrana, was previously charged in connection with the deaths of eight people in a road crash in Inishowen last year.

Mr Kelly, the sole survivor of the crash, was charged with dangerous driving causing the deaths of eight men.

He was arrested a month ago and conveyed to Buncrana courthouse by Garda Carol Doherty.

Those who were died were Eamon McDaid, 21, of Ballymagan, Buncrana, PJ McLaughlin, 21, of Burnfoot, Ciaran Sweeney, 19, of Ballyliffin, James McEleney, 23, of Clonmany, Mark McLaughlin, 21, of Fahan, Paul Doherty, 19 of Ballyliffin, Damien McLaughlin, 21, of Buncrana and Hughie Friel, 66, of Urris.

The crash was the worst road tragedy on our roads ever.

It happened on July 11 last year and devastated several Inishowen communities.

It is expected today’s case will merely be mentioned before another court date is set.
