The incident occurred at around 3am on the R465 at Roo East between Ardnacrush and Broadford, in Clare.
The deceased was pronounced dead at the scene, and Gardaí have noted that he was the sole occupant of the car at the time of the collision.

The crash site and car have been preserved for examination by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators and local Scenes of Crime Officers. The road is currently closed to traffic and local diversions are in place.
