Twenty people have been killed in a crash that involved a limo bringing people to a party in up-state New York.
The incident occurred on Saturday evening (early Sunday morning Irish time), and all 18 people in the limousine died.
Two pairs of newly-weds and four sisters from one family are among the dead.
17 people were in the car on their way to a surprise birthday party - with the driver and two pedestrians also killed.
Eyewitnesses described seeing an SUV-style limo plough into people at a store and cafe near a busy intersection in the town of Schoharie.
