Aileen Malone, the mother of the late journalist Dara Quigley, received a significant letter in the post last week. Four years after Dara died by suicide, came a formal apology in writing from Garda Commissioner Drew Harris, expressing his sincere regret for the police misconduct that likely contributed to her death.

In spring 2017 Dara was 36 and struggling with long-term mental health and substance-abuse problems. She had been referred to an in-patient centre for treatment but her admission had been delayed.
