"It is with great sadness that I learn of this morning’s plane crash, involving the flight from Belfast to Cork. My thoughts are with the families of those involved and I offer my sympathies to everyone affected.

I have spoken to Minister for Transport in the south Pat Carey TD and offered the support of my Department to help in whatever way we can.
