Dear Niamh,

  • Go To

I am so proud that there are women like you out there - women who will do the right thing when something bad happens.

It gives me faith that at some point in time, in our little nation, there may be justice for people who have been raped and/or sexually assaulted. You have shown remarkable courage and strength, in bringing your case to court, waiving your right to anonymity and for questioning the suspended sentence the man who raped you received. Please, for all our sakes, keep going.
