“But also, we want to acknowledge that this has affected everybody in the whole town and we wanted people to come together for people to [pay their] respects and for them to grieve.

The Irish Aviation Authority has launched an investigation into the alleged use of a drone near the crash on Friday night - amid concern it could have hindered the response of emergency services.
“Following the reckless use of a drone in the aftermath of the tragedy in Clonmel, drone users are reminded to avoid areas where an emergency response effort is ongoing,” the IAA said in a statement on Monday evening.
“This is the law. This regulation is in place to protect the privacy of those affected and the pilots working in emergency aerial support.”
An investigation by An Garda Síochána into the crash is ongoing and the IAA has been in contact with them.
