People have lined the streets of Clones, in County Monaghan, to form a guard of honour for one of the two teenagers killed on their way to an end-of-year school dance.
Kiea McCann, 17, and Dlava Mohamed, 16, died near the Irish border, after a car which was carrying five people left the N54 road and hit a tree, Gardaí (Irish police) said.
In their death notices, their families said they were best friends.
On Tuesday night, mourners gathered on Monaghan Street and at The Diamond, as a mark of support for the family, as Kiea’s body was brought home.
Death notices for both girls described the deaths as untimely and said they would be sorely missed by those who knew them.
BBC News NI understands Dlava’s family moved to Ireland from Syria about seven years ago.
