Inquest into death of 6-year-old Jake Brennan takes place today

The inquest into the death of a young boy from Kilkenny begins in Carlow today.

Jake Brennan was 6 years old when he was knocked down by a car while playing outside his home in Lintown Grove, Kilkenny in June 2014.

His mother Roseann has been heading the Jake’s Legacy campaign since his death, to enact legislation that will reduce the speed at which cars can drive in housing estates.

She says that she knows today is not going to be easy.
