Cherry tomatoes are, typically, very large tomato plants -
often larger than other tomato plants, in fact.  I certainly
don't think you can set them closer.  If anything, further
apart might be better.  

Don't know about the irrigation.  We generally have too much

Not this year though:  0.5" precipitation in April, 0.0" in
May.  This is awful for spring (in the northeast) and I hope
it changes very soon.  I have a bad feeling that it's an
omen for the summer....
