Article on murders deserving of praise

Published 09/09/2016

I wish to commend Suzanne Breen on an excellent piece of journalism on Alan Hawe, the man who killed his family and then himself in Co Cavan.

Its honesty alone is a testament to its creativity. It's an article that should be posted in every newspaper in the world to demonstrate that men like Alan Hawe will not be celebrated in any form or fashion.

His actions will not be smoothed over, trivialised or reasoned with. There is no justification for what he did, nor can there or will there be, no matter what.

For honesty, integrity and sincerity I applaud your article Suzanne and I suspect there was a tear or two shed in its design.
