John Marc Knight told Muireann Mc Donnell he loved her "too much" and was sorry for what he was about to do, an inquest heard yesterday.The message was sent at 2.17am on February 12, just hours before Mr Knight's mother found him hanging from a tree in the back garden of a neighbour's home.Mrs Vard told the court that her son, a normal, happy young man, had been a bit low in the two weeks prior to his death because of the break-up of his relationship with his girlfriend."But I never dreamed of this," she told the inquest, in floods of tears.Self-harm Mr Knight's friend, Mark Conway from Sandyford, who was out with John on the night before his death, told the court that he was aware that his friend had a history of self-harming by cutting and taking tablets.
Mr Knight's father, John O'Connor, of 22 Marlton Demesne, Wicklow town, told the court that he last spoke to his son on the night of February 11 at 9.30pm.“I get it a lot, ‘Oh it will be different when you have a child’; ‘When you have a child, you’ll have to change your life’. It’s not something that I ever wanted.” I looked at 50 million photos of Willow Smith today and this is the result. 👚👖👢on @sixoclockshow are all from @littlewoodsirl #sp #ootd A post shared by Muireann O' Connell (@muireann.o) on The multi-talented broadcaster is currently seeing someone and said that while motherhood does not scare her, she doesn’t think that it’s for her.“I love children, I love being around kids, I love babysitting but I think there are some people in this world who it’s not for,” she said. We are facing a massive over-population crisis in this world and if some people don’t want to have kids, they don’t want to have kids.As I got older, people would say, ‘Some day, when you’re a mother’.“But it’s just not something that ever really entered my mind, that I would have children, because it was a very adult thing to do.” She told TV Now magazine that people often make remarks to her about becoming a parent but she has made her mind up that it’s not a path she wants to go down.
