There is no comfort to be drawn from the tragic, even horrific, story of the death of 24-year-old Irish student Karen Buckley.

Nothing can possibly soften the traumatic events that her mother and father, John and Marion Buckley, have endured with such dignity since the news of their daughter's disappearance in Glasgow broke on Monday.

They may well take some comfort from their many friends in the small Co Cork village of Mourneabbey, who have rallied round the family in the past few days and tried, if that is possible, to provide some comfort to them during this truly terrible ordeal.
