The family of a young woman who died after her car veered on to the wrong side of the road and into the path of a cement truck, has alleged that her death arose from alleged negligence and failures to ensure the road was safe.
Ashling Gallagher was killed instantly in the collision at Murrivaugh, Mulranny, Co Mayo, on December 22nd, 2004.
Her mother Kathleen Gallagher, Askill, Bunnacurry, Achill Island, Co Mayo, has, on behalf of the family, sued Mayo County Council along with companies involved in works on the N59 Newport to Mulrany Road at that time.
The case is due to open in the High Court next Tuesday before Mr Justice Bernard Barton.
