Flux Podcast : 29 January 2007

"We've got your picture; now what's your name?" (Broadcast 29th January 2007.) The programme tells the story of the aftermath of the deaths in Firhouse, Dublin of three members of the Keegan family. In February 2006, during a bout of psychiatric illness, Mary Keegan killed herself and her two young sons, Glen and Andrew. Local and national media arrived to tell the story and were met with cooperation and resentment from the community. The local people needed the journalists' products and yet hated them being there. Producer, Ronan Kelly, lives in the area and saw the media coverage from both sides. (The title refers to a comment made to the local parish priest by an unidentified press photographer after he had said prayers at the Keegan home the day the three bodies were discovered.)
