Mother on pain of losing son in IRA Mountbatten attack

The mother of a boy murdered in the IRA bomb attack that killed Prince Charles' great-uncle, Lord Mountbatten, has welcomed the prince's visit to Ireland.

The prince is to visit the place where his great-uncle was killed in 1979, on the second day of his visit to Ireland.

Mary Hornsey, whose son Paul Maxwell, 15, was killed, said: "It's a good thing that people will never forget how awful it is for a mother to lose her son. And realise the absolute senselessness of violence."
