The two men who died in a plane crash in Co Kildare on Thursday night have been named.
70-year-old James Price and 58-year-old Aidan Rowsome were killed after their small plane came down in a remote field at Belan near Athy.
The remains of the wreckage have now been removed to the Air Accident Investigation Unit facility in Gormanston, Co Meath.
It'll be further examined today.
Lead investigator Howard Hughes says there was no distress signal from the plane, but a radio transponder code led rescuers to the crash site.
"I immediately contacted Dublin Air Traffic Control, where they commenced a playback of the ATC tapes for a particular time frame when it was assumed that the aircraft might have got airborne.
"The trace only lasted for about one minute - it's what's known as a 7,000 conspicuity transponder squawk that the pilot had put on, and it showed the position of the aircraft briefly in this area".
