BREAKING NEWS - IRISH MAN CONFIRMED DEAD IN GREEK WILD FIRE
An Irishman has died after becoming caught up in a wildfire in Greece.
Brian O'Callaghan-Westropp and his wife Zoe Holohan were on honeymoon in the coastal town of Mati when the fires hit.
The couple only got married last Thursday, before flying out to Greece for their honeymoon on Saturday.
Ireland’s Ambassador to Greece Orla O'Hanrahan confirmed the death and said her sympathies went out to the family of Mr O'Callaghan-Westropp at this time.
Mr O'Callaghan-Westropp worked for a Dublin catering company and also volunteered for Blood Bikes East, which provides an emergency medical transport service around hospitals in Dublin.
Meanwhile, Ms Holohan remains in hospital after suffering burns to her head and hands.
The Dublin-based couple were travelling in a vehicle when they were forced to flee.
Ms Holohan was able to escape to a nearby beach and was admitted to hospital last night.
Ambassador O'Hanrahan said that she is expected to make a full recovery.
