Irish people paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester bombing as a book of condolence was laid out in the Mansion House in Dublin.

President Michael D Higgins, his wife Sabina and Taoiseach Enda Kenny were among the first to sign the book as people streamed in.

Roisín Warren, who came to sign the book with her young daughter, said: "What happened is just devastating, young people out having a good time and for that to happen to them."

A book of condolence was also opened at Cork City Hall yesterday.
