Share this article


A woman who helped at the scene of the Buncrana tragedy is reportedly suing the family of the victims.

Sean McGrotty, his two sons, his mother-in-law and her daughter all died when the SUV he was driving, slid off the pier and into the sea in March 2016.

Sean's four month old daughter Riaghnach-Ann was the only survivor after she was rescued by passer by Davitt Walsh and tended to by his then girlfriend Stephanie Knox

Mr McGrotty's father Noel has told Derry Now that he has received a legal letter from Ms Knox, who wishes to claim an undisclosed amount from the estate of his late son for loss of earnings and other matters.

However, in a Facebook post, Ms Knox’s sister said that Stephanie had been informed by gardaí that people who had been there on the day of the tragedy were lodging claims, so she had gone to her solicitor for advice.

She also said her sister thought that the claim was against Donegal county council.
