The sister of a Fermanagh teenager killed when the IRA murdered Lord Mountbatten has told of her pain after watching the dramatisation of the explosion on Netflix's The Crown.
Paul Maxwell (15) was killed along with Lord Mountbatten and his grandson Nicholas Knatchbull (14) and Lady Doreen Brabourne (83) in the 1979 IRA bombing of the royal's boat, Shadow V, at Mullaghmore, Co Sligo.
The Provo atrocity features in the first episode of series four of The Crown which premiered on Netflix last week.
Paul Maxwell's sister Donna Macauley (58) says she felt unsettled for days after watching the recreation of the bombing and questioned whether it should have been included in the show.
She said: "You try to keep the trauma hidden but eventually it has to come out.
"I knew when I watched The Crown last week the pain of what happened in Mullaghamore was bubbling underneath.
"It was surreal, part of me was thinking it's a film, it's a dramatisation, but the trauma was bubbling underneath and it was very hard to watch.
"It left me feeling very on edge for three or four days after, so there was an emotional impact.
"I didn't get upset watching it because when you have suffered a trauma like that you bury it very, very deep, you have a lot of physiological mechanisms to keep it deep."
Mrs Macaulay says she thinks the show teaches a new generation, including daughter Rose (22), about Ireland's troubled past but wonders if The Crown was right to "dramatise something like this".
She continued: "I think it would have also been difficult for anyone involved in that day to watch it; rescue workers, locals, friends, family."
However, Mrs Macaulay added: "Maybe these things need to be remembered and not forgotten.
"If anyone watches it and thinks it wasn't right bombing an old man, an old lady and two children then maybe it is worth showing."
Although Paul Maxwell does not appear as a character in the episode, Mrs Macaulay said she was pleased he is mentioned, adding: "Initially I was thinking 'where is Paul in this? But he was mentioned by name which was really good."
Mrs Macaulay was just 17 at the time of the atrocity and had been joined at the family cottage by her friend Rachael Johnson. She remembered: "We were standing outside and there was this almighty bang, we didn't know what it was. I ran down to the headlands and the boat was in pieces."
Her father John got into a boat to find out what had happened while she "walked around in the harbour in a state of shock".
She also recalled "seeing all the bodies with sheets over them, and dad screaming at me that Paul was dead."
Family friend Toni Johnson, Rachael's mother, says she was left "very upset" watching the episode last week.
In the aftermath of the tragedy she and now late husband Gordon immediately made the 45-minute journey to Mullaghmore from their home in Enniskillen to pick up Rachael.
"The phone went," she remembered. "It was Rachael and she was crying. She said - and I'll never forget it - 'Mum, tell dad he has to come! Paul's dead, Mountbatten's dead, there's been a bomb on the boat'.
"Gordon got into the car and shot off down the road. He stopped 15 minutes from here to be sick."
Mrs Johnson said watching The Crown gave her "a shock... I remember Mullaghmore with such fondness and the bombing spoiled it for all of us. At the heart of it all there are families grieving in a very public way. You can't get over anything like that."
A separate IRA attack at Warrenpoint, 120 miles away, killed 18 British soldiers on the same day as Lord Mountbatten's murder.
The Crown has come under fire or its portrayal of the royal family and the dramatisation of the attack. Creator Peter Morgan has also been forced to defend "fabricated scenes" between Prince Charles and Mountbatten.
