Another woman in her 20s, the driver of the second car, was brought to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown to be treated for her injuries – where she later died.
Her passengers, three children, were brought to Our Lady of Lourdes Drogheda to be treated for their injuries.
One has since been transferred to CHI Temple Street.
The road was closed to allow forensic collision investigators to conduct a technical examination of the scene, but has since reopened.
Gardai have appealed for witnesses.
