The parents of Nóra Quoirin have called on the Irish Government to assist them in securing an inquest into the death of their 15-year-old girl.
Nora tragically died of intestinal bleeding – likely caused by hunger and stress – after she disappeared in August. The teenager was on holiday with her family when she went missing in the Dusun rainforest resort.
Her parents have stressed that they need to find out the truth about Nora’s death. They said that her disappearance was out of character.
Speaking to RTÉ, Meabh and Sebastian Quoirin revealed that they had a promising meeting with the Department of Foreign Affairs this week.
Many questions remain around Nóra Quoirin’s disappearance. Her family want Malaysian authorities to open an inquest into her death. Here is an extract from an exclusive interview where they remember the “funny” and “courageous” person Nóra was. https://t.co/xQ5Oiknd8R

"For us something very complex happened. We have insisted from the beginning that we believe there was a criminal element to what happened.
"While a post mortem, when it comes through, may give us answers, and has already given us some basic answers around what caused Nóra's death, it doesn't explain any of how she could possibly have got to where she was found."
"I think we will be living with the horror of what happened in Malaysia for the rest of our lives,” they added.
The parents understand that finding out the “whole truth” won’t be easy, but vowed to try.
