It has been reported that two men have died after their SUV was swept away in a river on Christmas Day after a night out with friends.

Accordig to Metro UK, the Irish police confirmed the bodies of the two victims – aged 26 and 27 – were found on Monday afternoon after a major search operation involving Garda divers and the Coastguard.

A 19-year-old man who was also in the jeep when it entered the Carrownisky River in County Mayo managed to escape and reach land at around 3am on Christmas morning.

The families of Declan Davitt, 26, and Martin Needham, 27, have said they were heartbroken to learn of their deaths. It is understood the men were returning to their homes in the area after a night socialising with friends.

They were close to a bridge crossing the stretch of water that had become swollen in bad weather.

There were gale force winds and water levels were high. Initial reports suggested the vehicle became submerged as it crossed the river near Louisburgh at around 2.30am on Monday.

The two men’s funerals will be held later this week. Public notices said they would be deeply mourned by their ‘heartbroken’ families.

Gardai were continuing to investigate the cause of the incident and post-mortem examinations were due to be carried out.

The Louisburgh Macra Na Feirme, a rural youth organisation, said it was an: ‘Unbelievably numbing day as we learned that these two fine men tragically were lost in an accident last night.

‘Two valued members since the beginning since re-establishing.’

Mayo county councillor Christy Hyland said the victims were from well-known and respected families in the area.

‘Our thoughts go out to their loved ones, their families and friends,’ he said.

‘The whole community is in shock.

‘This is a terrible tragedy to happen at any time, but especially on Christmas morning.’
