Am I the only one who finds wheeling out a survivor on national television so soon after the incident and telling us how ‘brave’ and strong’ they are is bang out of order?

The Irish woman who survived the Paris attacks with her boyfriend spoke to Ray D’Arcy last night.

    I understand what you are saying beano, but I’d imagine Katie chose to go on the show of her own volition. With all due respect to her, she’s probably not in her complete state of mind as you would expect. Nevertheless, there is a story to be told. If it turns out that she was subtly corralled into telling her story by the press, rte or anyone as by taking advantage of her aftershock, well that’s where serious questions would need to be asked !

    Beano. It’s Ray Darcy he needs some good publicity after last week. Like I always say “it’s all about Ray”

    No ones disputing that there isn’t a story to be told. It’s the timing of it I have an issue with. Jesus, its only been a little over a week. Have the people even been buried yet?

    People should be using her experience to think about how’d they react themselves. With the imminent arrival of thousands here and their families to follow it could be very useful. I’m very happy this lady and her partner got lucky and survived the ordeal

    Beano,
    Most victims haven’t been buried: still at the institut médico-légal

    What is happening in the Middle East is a war for resources….what is happening in Paris and Europe is a war for your mind…both being carried out by people that reside behind pearly gates in our countries….never forget that.

    In case you missed it, the whole point was to thank the people of Paris. And to never forget the people who died. I speak for myself and spoke on T.V to end media intrusion in our lives so we can try and heal. I’m sure you would handle yourself so much better than I.

    Katie I take my hat off to you for your bravery in letting the listeners know what you went through last Friday night. I felt your pain in the way you explained the details so very well. I hope that you and your partner David will be able to put this awful experience behind ye sooner rather than later. I was in tears listening last night. Take care and I hope you both have a happy life together.
