Dublin lecture theatre to be named after Veronica Guerin

A lecture theatre at Dublin City University is being named after journalist Veronica Guerin.

It is part of the university's Women in Leadership initiative, which plans to name half of its major buildings after inspiring females.

The Veronica Guerin Lecture Theatre is being unveiled at a special ceremony at the Glasnevin campus.

Her brother Jimmy says the initiative reflects the type of person that Veronica was - talented, ambitious, hard-working and brave.
