  1. i would just like to say i am sorry for this tragicincident that has happened. This is very unfortunate and justie will take its course, i have said a prayer everyday for Robert and his family since the news had broke out. Peace be with him. this has emotionally effected everyone in Ireland. You have my support throughout this.

  2. My deepest sympathy is with Robert and his family at this time.I hope justice will be done for Robert when his killer is brought to justice and given a maximum sentence for his crimes.I feel that even the maximum sentence isn’t enough for heartless, monsterous thugs like Robert’s killer.The onlt answer for people like them is the Death Penalty and it’s for cases like this and other murder cases that the Death Penalty is needed.What killers do to their victims is agsactly what should be done to themselves.

  3. i would like to offer my sincerest condolences on this sorry situation. for a young life a beautiful life to be taken so suddenly in such calous and tragic circumstances is heartbreaking not only for the family but all of us involved with children. i prayed everyday for his safe return, now we can only pray for his family and that this may never happen again. rest little one rest in peace.
