A pilot and a seven-year-old boy were killed yesterday when a light aircraft crashed in Co Offaly. He was flying a Cessna Caravan aircraft.

The plane came down at the site which is between Daingean and Edenderry after taking off from the Irish Parachute Club in Clonbullogue.

According to Gardaí, an aircraft took off from Clonbullogue Airfield with 16 parachutists on board at 2.25pm on Sunday afternoon. When it got near tree line I could see the tail move a bit.

"The Air Accident Investigation team will continue their inquiry in the morning", explains RTÉ. The Irish Times reports that the man is a regular jumper with the club.

"The club is very long-standing in the area and very well run", he said.
