The plaque on the wall says it all: 'Veronica Guerin: In loving memory of a courageous and loyal past pupil, St Mary's Secondary School, 1971-1976'.

Her mother Bernie has been greeted on her arrival at the school in Killester, Dublin by head girl Fiona Shorthall and pupil Titi Salju, who have come back specially from their holidays for her visit.

Principal Cathy Wyer ushers Bernie into the small but colourful visitors' reception area of the school where Veronica spent her formative years and where she is now commemorated by a rich inscription.
