Video: Heartbreaking advert tells the story of losing a child to drink driving

A young boy killed by a drink driver has become the face of a Christmas and New Year anti drink driving campaign.

Ciaran Treacy was a passenger in his mother's car when Finbarr O’Rourke, a 41-year-old man who had consumed up to 10 pints of cider crashed his vehicle head-on into them near Ballymorris, Co Laois in 2014.

Gillian and Ronan Treacy are now urging people not to drink and drive in a new Road Safety Authority (RSA) Christmas campaign that describes the impact the tragedy had on their lives.

The campaign will revolve around the advertisement which features Ciarán's parents and others involved on the day of his death.
