Councillor for the area Emer Higgins described the events as an ‘unimaginable tragedy’.
‘My thoughts are with everybody impacted,’ said the Fine Gael representative.
‘This is a really tight-knit community, it’s a small area, it’s a quiet area, and it’s just unthinkable that something like this could be happening on our doorstep.
‘It’s so tragic. It’s unbelievable that three young people’s lives could be cut short like that, in what seems to be a particularly tragic case.’
