Nobody did more than Bernie to protect Veronica’s name and legacy
Willie Kealy on Bernie Guerin's wit, spirit, humour and strength -- and her mischievous nature
I had to speak at a function in Trinity College a few years ago where the life and work of my late colleague, Veronica Guerin, was being honoured.
The audience was made up of those who are normally referred to as the great and the good, as well as a few of us who actually knew Veronica from working with her and some members of her family. Bernie Guerin led the family group.
It occurred to me that most of those present were aware of some of the qualities that made Veronica great -- courage, tenacity, intelligence and integrity. And I suggested that if they wondered where these qualities came from, they need do no more than reflect on the short address which Bernie had delivered earlier in the evening.
