Maeve and her daughter Abbie were left with multiple fractures as well as mental and emotional scars following the collision with a car driven by a man suffering a psychotic episode.

An Athlone woman will speak at the European Commission today in effort to change laws around access to driving licences.

Meave Kelly from Coosan was involved in a fatal road collision in 2016 which involved a man who was suffering from severe mental illness.

She believes new laws need to be introduced which would temporarily remove a driver's licence if they were found to be enduring a profound mental disorder.
