EXCLUSIVE: 'You really remember the emotion...your whole world around you, is just bawling their eyes out' - Watch the full interview with Veronica Guerin’s son Cathal Turley

Veronica Guerin's son has described the difficult moment he saw his father break down at the journalist's funeral.

Speaking to the Sunday Independent ahead of the twentieth anniversary of Ms Guerin's death Cathal Turley recalls "not knowing what's going on" at her burial.

"Even though it was such a big part of my life and it was traumatic, I was still too young to understand what was going on, so I didn't really take it all in, you know.

"You remember the Mass, you really remember the emotion. Like you're standing there not knowing what's going on, and everyone around you, your whole world around you, is just bawling their eyes out.

"Family, friends, cousins, uncles, my father - they're all upset and you really don't know what is going on or why."
