It wasn't so much that you had to be there, but you definitely had to see it, that fascinating debate in Leinster House last week on the horrendous ordeal of Mairia Cahill and other young innocent victims at the hands of the IRA.

Many of you were at work or just out, or doing something else, when it was televised live. And you probably relied on the RTE six o'clock or nine o'clock news to convey the drama. You would have been disappointed. In fact, you were probably left wondering what all the fuss was about. Why were those who saw it talking about how gripping it was, how important it was, how it made them proud for a change to be a democrat in Ireland in 2014? The news bulletins gave you the barest details - not much more than the fact that Enda had given out about Sinn Fein on the issue of moving sex abusers south of the border, Gerry Adams had responded and rejected the charge, and unless someone can come up with some new information, that's the end of the matter. Another one for the cold case file.
