The father of a seven-year-old boy killed in a light aircraft crash had made a scheduled parachute jump from the plane minutes earlier.
Gardaí (Irish police) said the aircraft, which had 16 parachutists on board, took off from Clonbullogue Airfield at 14:45 BST.
The pilot, who was in his 40s and from the United Kingdom, and the boy were on the plane which crashed not long after 16 skydivers jumped without incident.
The aircraft became embedded in the bog and the two occupants had not been recovered from the wreckage by late Sunday.
It is understood that the crashed plane was a Cessna Caravan. It is understood the task was made more hard as the plane was buried to a depth of around six feet in the bog.
"When it hit the tree line the tail moved and I knew there was something wrong", he said.
"I heard a awful roaring and it went straight down like a torpedo", Jimmy Slattery said.
The crash happened a few kilometres away in bog land near Edenderry.
