I though you might like to post the reply received from the office of an Taoiseach today to the mother of Indian murder victim Danielle McLaughlin.

It states in the most callous way that she wasn’t an Irish citizen and shouldn’t bother contacting the Irish government and goes on to provide contact details of the British Foreign sec.

Danielle was indeed an Irish citizen, and as such an Irish passport holder. She was also a British citizen and passport holder.

She was born in Scotland and moved back to Donegal with her Irish mother as a young child, thus qualifying for both citizenships.

The Department of an Taoiseach doesn’t seem to know this, or indeed care about it at all….

Around one hundred locals and tourists gathered to honour the young Buncrana woman in the location where her body was found in Canacona, in the southern part of Goa.

Mourners scattered flowers, photographs and gifts on the ground, along with a sign which read ‘Justice for Danielle’. The evening ceremony was said to have ended with an emotional rendition of Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman No Cry’.
