Mother of Erin and Shannon Gallagher may sue the VEC and HSE

It's reported this morning that the mother of sisters Erin and Shannon Gallagher is planning to sue the County Donegal VEC, and possibly also the HSE at a future stage.

A letter from Lorraine Gallagher's soliticors had already been received by the Donegal VEC on the 4th of this month, befopre the death of her 15c year old daughter Shannon, six weeks after 13 year Erin took her own life following claims that she had been subjected to a sustained campaign of cyber bullying.

The Irish Independent quotes Ms Gallagher as saying she is is angry and numb at the deaths of her two daughters. All the warning signs were there for school authorities and the HSE to protect her children, but she says the system failed them.
