The family and colleagues of Dr Brett Ireland who was killed in a plane crash in Feilding yesterday have issued the following statement:

“Dr Brett Ireland was a charismatic person who touched the lives of many. He was genuine and caring towards his family, friends and patients. He was quick-witted and his dry sense of humour was well known by all. These attributes made him loved by everyone who knew him.

Dr Brett Ireland was one of the founding members of the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. He ran successful chiropractic clinics in Palmerston North and Fielding. In 2002 he sold both of his practices. He and his family moved to the Gold Coast where he has an equally successful chiropractic practice.

Brett and his wife Janine had returned to Palmerston North for a friend’s daughter’s wedding.

He was a visionary and a leader in chiropractic care. The chiropractic community in New Zealand and Australia are reeling from this tragic loss.

His family and friends have been shattered by this unforseen tragedy.”

The family of Dr Brett Ireland have requested some privacy at this difficult time. They do not wish to make any further comment and ask that media do not make any further contact with them.
