A WIRRAL man has been killed in a hit and run incident in Ireland during the early hours of Sunday.
Alan McSherry, originally from Birkenhead, was discovered on the Newtown Road about one mile from Bundoran, Co Donegal at around 5.10am.
It is thought that the 48-year-old was walking home from a night out when he was struck by a vehicle.
Gardaí, the Irish police force, have now launched an investigation into the tragedy and are looking for the driver who failed to stop at the scene.
A post-mortem examination was expected to be carried out and the road was closed while the scene was investigated.
Gardaí are asking anyone who travelled on the Newtown Road near Bundoran on Saturday night or in the early hours of the following morning to contact them at Ballyshannon Garda Station on 071 9858530.
