"She lived life to the full, she didn't have a grudge against anybody - everybody loved her.

"She loved jiving, going around at the weekend going to all the country music. Everybody's just devastated."

Sinn Fein councillor Cathal Mallaghan said the deaths were a tremendous shock to the local community

"They were two very popular teenagers, the local community has been absolutely heartbroken since the news," he said.
