Gardaí appeal for witnesses after critically injured woman found unconscious by the side of a road

 17th October 2022

Shortly after 4am on Sunday October 16, a passer-by discovered a badly injured woman lying on the side of a road in County Mayo.

The woman is thought to be aged in her late 50s, and was unconscious when she was found.

Her injuries are unexplained and serious, and she was taken from the scene by ambulance to Mayo University Hospital where she is said to be in a critical condition.

Gardaí were called to the scene on the N5 at Cloggernagh in Islaneady, which they sealed off for a forensic examination to take place.

As investigators work to establish what exactly happened to the woman, they closed off the road and have put local diversions in place.

They’re appealing for witnesses or anyone with information about this woman or what happened to her to come forward.

They particularly want to anyone with dashcam footage of the area in the early hours of Sunday morning to make it available to them.

Anyone with information can contact Castlebar Garda Station on 094- 90308200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
