Mr Anderson, who was in his early twenties, was son of Seamus and Clare Anderson.

He was a hugely popular young man who worked as an apprentice welder with Suir Engineering.

His death has cast a shadow over the community with a young life taken so soon.

Jake was widely known and respected throughout the Clonmel and Clerihan communities.

During his teens he was a very promising rower with Clonmel Rowing Club.

A spokesman for the club said they were very saddened to hear the news and described Jake as a most obliging member, who was always helpful to young rowers.

His father Seamus had also been a coach at the club.

His remains will lie in repose at O'Donoghue's funeral home, Kickham Street, Clonmel on Thursday, between 5 and 8pm.

He will be buried following a funeral service on Good Friday in Clerihan at 12 noon.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses to the crash.
