Veronica Guerin

Veronica Guerin

By What's the Story? Sounds

If you’re an Irish gangster in the 1990’s the last thing you wanted, apart from seeing the inside of a jail cell, is for Veronica Guerin to be writing about you. Through her dogged investigating and fearless reporting, Guerin exposed the rotten underbelly of the Irish criminal underworld - becoming the most famous journalist in the country in the process. That level of notoriety unsurprisingly put a target on the thirty-six year old’s back, and on June 26th 1996, whilst stopped at a red light, Veronica was shot and killed by two men on a motorbike, a murder which sent shockwaves across Ireland.
