The parents of Nora Quoirin are suing a lawyer over controversial posts she made on Facebook about the disappearance and death of the tragic teenager in Malaysia last year.

Nora's Belfast-born mother Meabh and her husband Sebastian Quoirin have initiated defamation proceedings against retired solicitor Anne Brennan in the High Court in Dublin.

The case relates to a number of unproven theories and statements made by Ms Brennan in posts on the social media site in August last year.
