A 22-YEAR-OLD Co Tyrone man who was killed in a road crash at the weekend was laid to rest yesterday.

He was the only person in the car. Police are continuing to investigate the collision.

Requiem Mass was celebrated at 11am at St Patrick's Church, Cranagh, followed by burial in the adjoining cemetery.

Mr Gallagher, from the Gortin area, was the 48th person to die on the north's roads this year.

His death prompted renewed calls for the A5 to be upgraded.
