A law which stopped parents from publicly speaking about their children who were killed in violent circumstances has been abolished.

An amendment to the Children’s Act came into effect yesterday after being signed off by the President and the Justice Minister last month.

One of those affected by the law is Kathleen Chada whose two sons Eoghan and Ruairi were murdered by their father in 2013.

Kathleen joined Susan to talk about what this means for the families of victims and how important it is to be able to speak about her children by name.
