Funeral arrangements for the four victims of last week's crash in Clonmel, County Tipperary have been announced.

Nicole Murphy will be laid to rest this Thursday, following mass in Saint John the Baptist Church, Kilcash at 12 o'clock.

A joint funeral mass for Grace and Luke McSweeney will take place at 11.30 on Friday in Saints Peter and Paul's Church, Clonmel.

Zoey Coffey's funeral will also be held in Saints Peter's and Paul's at 11.30 on Saturday.

Tributes continue to be paid to the four young people who died in the single-car collision last Friday night.

The Accident

Gardaí believe a combination of heavy rain and wet roads caused the car they were travelling in to go out of control.

Luke was driving his sister Grace and her two friends Zoey and Nicole to a Leaving Cert results party on the night.

An investigation is also underway after a drone was launched above the scene of the road crash.

Gardaí issued an urgent appeal on Friday night for footage not to be re-shared online.

The Irish Aviation Authority is leading the investigation "an invasion of privacy and posed a flight safety risk".
