Do watch the life, times and death  of one Falls Road   woman from Belfast as she reacted to the circumstances she found herself in and decided accordingly.

During the programme reference is made to  many events which influenced Mairead

and determined her choices and decisions.

The Mirror has already  discussed some of them.
