A head-on collision on Australia’s Great Northern Highway on Monday resulted in the death of Kelly Meehan (31), from Newmarket-on-Fergus, Co Clare. Her boyfriend of five years, Patrick Gibbs (26), was seriously injured. He was taken to hospital in Geraldton, about five hours north of Perth but was later transferred by helicopter to Perth.

The couple, who met while studying at TCD, had just made a short visit to Ireland and were driving from Perth Airport to their home when an oncoming car veered across the highway and into their path.
Ms Meehan was born in California but the family returned to Newmarket-on-Fergus in the 1990s. Her parents are again living in California.
