Today’s coverage of the death of Mina Bean Uí Chroibín does your newspaper and the values it aspires to vindicate no service. It must also be deeply hurtful to her family. The deaths of Radovan Karadzic and Bashar Al-Assad will assuredly receive more balanced and contextualised treatment than you have afforded Bean Uí Chroibín.
