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.
The aircraft then went around a second time and came back for an approach to Runway 17. On the second approach to Runway 17 the aircraft crashed adjacent to Taxiway C. Rescue and Fire crew are in attendance.
There is a fire and debris has been scattered onto the runway and over a wide area.

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.
