In Memory of Lyra McKee – her TEDxStormont Talk

Last night, Lyra Mckee, a brilliant young investigative journalist, was shot and killed.

I chatted with Lyra on Twitter – she even gave me some help when I was stuck on a story. And I was far from the only one. Tributes have been pouring in.

The best tributes though come in the shape of Lyra’s own words. In 2017, she gave a very powerful talk at TedXStormont. You may also want to read the letter Lyra wrote to her 14-year-old self.

A GoFundMe has been setup to support Lyra’s family and her legacy.
