On Ballycastle Beach

That photograph was taken a few years ago. Shirley was relatively happy that day. She came through a lot that summer.

A year today since she was murdered and no one brought to justice yet.

God I am so sorry to hear that. I am at a loss for words.

Rest in peace, Shirley.

What a waste of young life.

Thoughts are with you Nelly.

Nelly said...

Thanks for comments folks. It does make you think though. It was a terrible waste of a life. She was a lovely girl. My thoughts are with her two families in Belfast.

Justice is just a concept, I don't see much of it around when people can be murdered and a guilty party not found.

The person/persons involved may still be walking the streets of Ballymena. A sobering thought.

A person has been charged. As far as I know he has been in custody for nearly a year but no trial as yet.

There were other (local) people involved in crimes against this young woman who will never stand trial for what they did.
