    That's dreadful news. I haven't been in Ireland for the last three months, but I know some helicopter pilots. Does anyone know where the helicopter was flying from/to?

    Terrible news. My thoughts go to the relatives.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Four now feared dead according to the Telegraph...

    Chartered helicopter flights in the region are a relatively common sight, with golfing groups and wedding parties known to have used them in the past. There was no immediate confirmation of the nature of the tragic flight.

    According to RTE, it was a 6 seater flying from Fermanagh

    It flew from Fermanagh to Leitrim Lodge in Mourne Mts, which may be near Rostrevor.
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    I really hope not. Where are your five steps again?

    Oh dear...this is definitely stage 1 or stage 2. Posters seeking proximity to the victims and some form of commiserations by proxy. Presumably your proximity to the crash affords you more sympathy.
