Brian Veale stabbed Graham Johnson in the kitchen area
A man has been handed a life sentence for murdering a fellow inmate at Cork Prison last year.
Brian Veale, who is originally from Dungarvan in Waterford, stabbed Graham Johnson following a row over what to watch on TV.
It only took the jury two and a half hours to find Veale guilty of murder at the end of last month.
He and 41-year-old Johnson were inmates of Cork Prison when a row broke out over what to watch on the TV in the kitchen area on May 16th last year.
A few hours later, Veale stabbed the father of three in the chest with a large knife.
A prison officer said he appeared "relatively calm" as his victim lay dying on the kitchen floor.
Graham Johnson's sister, Vivienne, read out a Victim Impact Statement on behalf of their 87-year-old mother Theresa.
She said it breaks her heart everyday thinking of how and why he is not here anymore - and said she will never understand or forgive Brian Veale for his actions on that dreadful day.
Veale was then handed the mandatory life sentence for murder.
