Dungannon drug mule Michaella McCollum Connolly was pictured grasping a self-help book entitled 'Secrets About Life Every Woman Should Know' before being handed down a six year and eight month sentence in a Lima courtroom this afternoon.

The paperback, written by author Barbara De Angelis, says it includes "ten principles for spiritual and emotional fulfillment".

According to a blurb on the popular retailer Amazon, the book shows that "by embracing 10 simple principles, you can transform any situation or event – no matter how difficult or challenging – into something that can enrich you".

Imagine what it would be like if, whatever challenges you were faced with – in your relationships, work or family – you could always remain calm and clear," it said.

"Imagine having a source of confidence and wisdom inside yourself that you could always count on."
