FOUR people have been questioned about drug dealing at the Indiependence festival in Mitchelstown last weekend.

The four were among more than 80 people arrested on suspicion of drug possession offences at the festival.

Files will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.

None of the arrests were in connection with the death of Clonmel teenager Jack Downey. The 19-year-old died at Cork University Hospital on Sunday after becoming ill at the festival on Friday. Gardai are now awaiting the results of toxicology tests to establish whether drugs played a role in his death.

No funeral arrangements have yet been made.
