One year on, premonition still haunts grieving mother

Editor's Viewpoint

It was a random dark thought that flashed through Eva Reilly's mind as she watched her daughter Lynette and her husband John depart on their honeymoon. She thought of the murder of another Northern Ireland bride Michaela McAreavey who was killed on her honeymoon. It was a tragic premonition, for Lynette and John drowned while swimming shortly after their arrival in South Africa.

To this day Eva still struggles to come to terms with the couple's deaths. Her only consolation is that their bodies were found and that their deaths were accidental. But only those who have suffered the same loss can truly feel her grief.
