A sad day

• It is indeed a sad day in Ireland when Steve Collins and his family are being forced to emigrate from Limerick, despite 24-hour armed garda protection, to achieve some peace in their traumatised lives. Their only crime was to have their innocent son gunned down by thugs.

Sadder still is the fact that we the people of Ireland have allowed this to happen.
