THE FAMILY OF Lynsey O’Brien, who fell from the balcony of a cruise ship in 2006, have spoken out about their continued fight for answers into her death.
Lynsey died at the age of 15 after falling from the balcony of her cabin on a luxury liner during a family holiday to the Caribbean in 2006.
She would have turned 21 today.
Her father, Paul O’Brien, spoke to the Daily Mail today and unveiled the heartbreak suffered by the family since Lynsey’s tragic death. He told the paper:
I will fight on until I have no breath in my body but someone will be made to answer for Lynsey’s death.
It was discovered Lynsey had downed a number of vodka cocktails in two hours in one of the Costa Magica cruise ship’s bars, despite being underage.
When Lynsey died, the then-taoiseach Bertie Ahern ordered the Department of Foreign Affairs to investigate the incident, but so far no one has been found accountable for her death.
Lynsey’s body has not yet been recovered.
