Editor's Viwepoint: Hitting a bright note

Next week Grainne Holland will fulfill a lifetime's ambition with the launch of her first album of songs in the Irish language.

She will be surrounded by family members on the big day, with one notable exception, her father, Harry, the west Belfast greengrocer stabbed to death four years ago.

It was his death which gave Grainne a new focus in life and the desire to really pursue her dream. She is convinced her father's spirit has guided her towards her new career and believes he would have been very proud of her talent. Sometimes even the darkest stories from our troubled land have a silver lining and this is one such occasion.
