The aircraft made an approach to Runway 17 in low visibility conditions (Category 2) and went around and did not land and attempted a second landing on Runway 35.

There is a fire and debris has been scattered onto the runway and over a wide area.

I believe Belfast is also having trouble with fog this morning. Do we know if it was returning back to Cork after not getting in to Belfast or had it originated from Belfast?

Another newsflash on now - with "on the scene" report from radio correspondent. No mention of operator, but no correction. An ambulance has left the scene with Gardai escorting, so there is some hope there.

The web piece above is lifted directly from IAA website here :

Would such an aircraft have a DFDR (data recorder) and or CVR on board?
If it was a Metroliner rather than a Merlin it should have both.

Seem to remember that the DFDR was located in the tail section outside the pressure bulkhead
