KIDS’ GRIEF OVER DAD’S FEUD KILLING
Martin O’rourke school. He was meant to be picking her up on her first day.
“She still wants to find him. She still wants to know why did her daddy did not pick her up.
“How do you tell a four-year-old her daddy is not coming back any more?
“She’s asking me questions I don’t have the answer to. I don’t want to be lying to her but at the same time I don’t want to tell her the cold truth that her father was shot dead.
“You just look at her little face and you see Martin. And to see the distress and anger that is in that child is just unbelievable.”
Principal Mark Candon revealed a group from St Laurence O’toole CBS primary school on a visit to the capital narrowly missed getting caught up in the shooting. He said: “The route they would normally take back to school would have been right by the spot where that shooting happened.
“If they had been coming that route a little earlier they’d have been right on top of that. This is the middle of the day Larry Power Christy Kinahhan in the middle of a street and some fella is shooting off a rake of bullets.” Larry reveals the family’s struggle on Liveline: Callback on RTE One this Thursday. Martin, who was receiving support from Focus Ireland, was on his way to a back to an education scheme after his lunch break when he was shot. Larry tells Liveline:callback: “I was actually walking into Sheriff Street at the time and there was police everywhere. If I’d have known my son-in-law was in that forensic tent I would have come in to him. “I still can’t believe it he’s dead. Although I’m saying he’s dead, I believe he’s still walking around the streets somewhere.” email@example.com
