Irish couple knocked down and killed in Italy named
An Irish couple knocked down and killed in Italy have been named as Paul and Mary Reilly from Kilmore in Co. Wexford.
They were holidaying in Rome when they were hit by a car at lunchtime yesterday.

Rome Correspondent with the Daily Wire, Bree Dail says it happened at a very busy junction:
“Paul and Mary Martina Riley, both 60 and 59 were struck while crossing that road on the pedestrian side. investigations are ongoing. It does seem like the individual who hit them who was a man around 59 years old, stopped he got out of the car he started to perform, you know emergency actions, but they did die on the scene. So there is investigation on going to whether or not he crossed through a red light.”
