    There is no need for the vivid description. The deaths are tragic enough without those insights.

    I’ll forward a letter of complaint and push it through the Press Ombudsman also. Anyone know the Editor off the top of their head? I don’t read the Metro so have no idea.

          wiill someone not think of the people on Direct Provision who hand out the thing every morning? They need the work.

    Should we ask Phil Hogan what he thinks of that ? We probably can guess his answer , his private one anyhow…

    Nice,descriptive stuff that conveys the horror which greeted emergency workers arriving at the scene.
    I’m surprised more sandalistas on here are not complaining about the reference to settled Travellers.

    Gutter journalism. Who cares what their background is? We also do not need to know what conditions they where found in. Scum scum scum!

      No – its fairly weird stuff at the end of the day. And I prefer my news factual rather than politically correct.

      Agreed. The description is gratuitous and unnecessary. But it’s a tabloid and a free one at that. God be with the days when people tutted rather than tweeted.

      I don’t see what is so wrong with the article – it is reporting a brutal killing. Poor lads, RIP.

    Firstly let me say that this story is so heartbreaking and I can’t even fathom how this family are feeling today. However, This article is so ironic and reminds me of the way The Guardian report on distasteful stories from The Daily Mail. If broadsheet.ie are sooo horrified by the unncecessary colour, why add fuel to the fire by even reporting on it? Let’s just leave the story alone and allow the family to come to terms with this tragedy in peace.
