John McAreavey said that he hopes this weekend's 'Match for Michaela' will show people you can move forward in the right way.

Donegal's All-Ireland winning footballers will play an Ulster selection tomorrow to raise funds for the foundation set up in memory of Michaela who was killed on honeymoon in Mauritius nearly two years ago.

Two men were cleared of killing her earlier this year.

Her husband John McAreavey was asked this morning whether he still hopes whoever was behind Michaela's death will be caught.

"It's something that I'm actively pursuing, and I will be pursuing until I am satisfied," he said.

"But I just want to focus on what I'm doing right now, this foundation, because obviously it has been a very hard time and it's good to have some positivity in your life and that's why I'm very, very excited about this Match for Michaela so hopefully it'll show people that you can move forward in the right way and we're doing something worthwhile."
