Letters to the Editor

May I, through the medium of your widely read newspaper, congratulate RTÉ on their re-run on Wednesday night of the film 'Veronica Guerin' and, more importantly, on the follow-up programme 'Veronica Guerin - a Legacy'.

Its concluding remarks on where the criminal world has been allowed to spread its evil ways since that tragic event which resulted in the death of a brave journalist is, in my opinion, very relevant in today's world.

The response by the government at the time of Veronica's death was most gratifying and the politicians of the day deserve praise for their determination to 'fight back' against the lawless gangs that then roamed our streets.
