Tribute to Vera McVeigh…

I WAS saddened today to learn of the death of a brave woman of quiet nobility; Vera McVeigh, the mother of Columba, one of the ‘Disappeared’ who was murdered by the IRA and whose body has never been found. When, three or four years ago, I heard Vera talk of her need to bury her son before she died, it was incredibly moving. To learn that she never got to do this is something that makes my heart sink. I hope she is at peace now.
