Tributes have been paid to a young Clare woman who has lost her fight for life following a car crash two years ago.
29 year old Nicole Ryan-Graham from Meelick was seriously injured in an accident in Kansas in the US in February 2010 and spent a number of weeks in hospital in a coma.
Various fund-raising drives were held right across Clare to help her and her family in the weeks and months after the accident to pay medical bills .
However the mother of three daughters passed away on Thursday following a long battle with her injuries.
Councillor Cathal Crowe-a former classmate of Nicole-says its a huge tragedy.
