‘I’m standing on the roadside, and I’m screaming, ‘Darragh, Darragh, Darragh!’ I’m screaming for him, ‘Where are you?’ I’ll be there in a minute’. I’m roaring at the top of my lungs, telling him, ‘I will be there’. I’m telling him to ‘stay there – Dad is on his way’.

Tom Sheehan plays back every moment of that night in August 2020 when he was told his 26-year-old son, from Doneraile in Co Cork, was dead after being restrained during an altercation outside the Gleneagle Hotel in Killarney.
