      No, I get it now. I bet he's hoping that Shane Horgan, Bernard Jackman, Simon Easterby, et al don't have a road collision this weekend. Ah, that's nice.

                Bad enough losing the young when they move away from such a small and close knit place but this...

                  from indo;

                  ''The latest tragedy happened at 2am yesterday when three young men died after being trapped in a car that plunged into the sea just metres from a West Cork beauty spot.

                  Two other young men miraculously escaped after their Ford Fiesta apparently spun out of control at Dunboy Castle on the Castletownbere to Dursey Island road.

                  The deaths of Colum Harrington, 21, Fintan O'Driscoll, 18, and Shane Kelly, 20, shocked the tight knit Beara community.

                  The tragedy - which occurred not far from where the luxury Dunboy Castle Hotel resort is being built - came as a second heartbreaking blow for the O'Driscoll family.

                  Rose O'Driscoll lost her husband, Ger, in a fishing tragedy two years ago - and yesterday saw her only son Fintan die in the Dunboy tragedy.''

                              From todays Indo. Crazy coincidence.

                              @@@@SPAN style="font-weight: bold;">Garda caught up in second road tragedy@@@@/SPAN>

                              @@@@SPAN style="font-style: italic;">By Paul Melia and Ann Marie Walsh@@@@/SPAN><br style="font-style: italic;">@@@@SPAN style="font-style: italic;">Monday March 03 2008@@@@/SPAN>

                              A GARDA caught up in a New Year's road car fatality was critically ill last night after his vehicle was involved in a collision on a busy dual carriageway yesterday.

                              He was seriously injured after two youths drove to their deaths down the wrong side of the N7 in Citywest, Dublin yesterday.

                              In a macabre turn of events, the garda had been involved in a crash on New Year's Day which killed one of their cousins.

                              The deaths of the two young men brought to eight the number who lost their lives on the roads over the weekend.

                              Last night, it emerged that the garda was involved in a New Year's Day collision which claimed the life of Dublin teenager Philip Hogarty, who was on his way home after a night out.

                              One of the men who died on the N7 yesterday - 18-year-old Lee Mooney - was related to tragic Philip.

                              The garda, who is likely to be cleared of any blame in connection with Mr Hogarty's death, was not believed to be at fault for yesterday's incident.

                              It is understood the 27-year-old garda was on his way home to Naas at 6am after finishing his shift at Tallaght station when a car - driven on the wrong side of the motorway - hit his vehicle head-on.

                              The other deaths on a weekend of carnage included the tragedy in Castletownbere, Co Cork, where a car plunged into water and three men were killed.

                              So far this year 63 people have died, eight more than in the same period last year.

                              Philip Hogarty was the first person to die on the nation's roads this year, and last night his grieving mother said the coincidence had devastated the family.

                              Although it is just eight weeks since her son died, Kay Byrne said her thoughts were with the family of the seriously injured garda.

                              Speaking with her partner, John Murray, at her home, the sobbing mother said she could not bring herself to visit Lee's body in Tallaght Hospital mortuary yesterday.

                              She said Lee's mother Caroline - her second cousin - is distraught and is being consoled at her home in Clondalkin.

                              "First Phil, and now this," she said. "It's just horrible."

                              "It's just eight weeks since Phil died. We can't believe it's the same garda and he is just a young man."

                              She said that Philip and Lee had not really known each other, as they were part of a large family.

                              Only yesterday, she was at an event held by Philip's chess club in Banratty, where a trophy was presented in his honour.

                              The teen was knocked down as he made his way home after celebrating the New Year.

                              The chairman of the Irish Chess Union, he died in hospital the day after the accident from his injuries.

                              "I couldn't go down to Tallaght Hospital today. It would be like seeing Phil all over again.

                              Tragic

                              "I wish the garda well. It's tragic for him and his family as well," said Kay Byrne.

                              The Garda Press Office said his condition was serious, but not life-threatening.

                              The Garda Ombudsman took over the investigation because of the involvement of a member of the force, but handed it back to gardai after establishing that the two men - aged 19 and 20 - had travelled the wrong way down the motorway.

                              "This decision follows a technical and forensic examination of the scene as well as independent witness accounts", an Ombudsman spokesman said.

                              It is understood the men, driving a Fiat Punto, turned the wrong way down a slip road at either Rathcoole or Citywest before entering the N7.

                              They travelled some 400 metres on the southbound side before crashing head-on into the garda's Honda car, which was coming from Dublin.

                              It is believed the other
