Tragic Roma's mum deserves another chance to be happy
Andrea McAleese has known more than her fair share of sorrow, most tragically when her Roma (3) was killed in a traffic accident eight years ago.
Andrea marked her own grief by lobbying for, funding and building a memorial garden in Coleraine in tribute to her daughter and also for other families who have lost a child.
Tomorrow will be a bittersweet day for Andrea as she gets married to Tommy McConaghy but also remembers her lost child.
Everyone who knows her will wish her every joy on her big day and a lifetime of happiness to counter-balance the difficulties of the past.
She truly deserves it.
