Very sad. I knew the instructor, we did some of our training together. He was a nice fella and was always up for a laugh.

Very tragic and very very sad. I didn't know them but the aircraft was a frequent visitor to Clonbullogue and I've never seen anyone exit it without huge smiles and happiness.

From everyone at the NMAI, our sincerest condolences. Our thought and prayers are with the families and everyone at Ormond Flying Club at this very difficult and sad time.

We are a small community and even though I didn't know Niall or Damien it is still a shock to hear of this.

My thoughts and prayers are with both their families and everyone at Ormand Flying Club.

I know it is at taboo, especially when there are lives lost. No one wants to talk about it. But it happens every year WHY??? I'm a pilot myself, and aircraft accident is my special interest, ironically. Why do we run out of fuel. I'm not being funny or smart here - I honestly ask for your opinion??? Is it lack of , training, too much confidence...? why?
Regards S.P.
