The mother of Shane O'Farrell, who died in a hit and run incident in county Monaghan in 2011, believes a public inquiry into his death is required.
Yesterday, the Government announced a scoping inquiry, which will be led by Judge Gerard Haughton.
However, the family said it falls short.
Shane O'Farrell was struck by a car driven by a man who was out on bail for a number of offences at the time.
Shane's mother, Lucia, said she wants a public inquiry: "We're seven and a half years on we haven't been given the answers we deserve.
"That needs to be done and it needs to be done in a public forum, where the public can see.
"I think this just another mechanism that's been put in place to our family...we've engaged in every process to date."
