Two young women were badly injured in separate falls near Páirc Uí Caoimh in Cork where Ed Sheeran was performing over the weekend.

It is feared a 17-year-old suffered life changing injuries after falling 100ft down an old quarry while taking a shortcut to the gig on Saturday night.

She was being treated in hospital last night for a suspected broken neck.

Another young woman broke both of her legs on the same night after apparently falling from the roof of a building where she planned to listen to the concert.

She is expected to make a full recovery.
