A CD in memory of one of the young girls who lost her life on the M1 Motorway 10 years ago is to be launched in Tartaraghan Church of Ireland on Tuesday (June 5).

Laura Robinson and Leigh Creaney were killed on June 5, 2002, after the car they were in was hit by a drunk driver who was speeding down the fast lane of the motorway towards oncoming traffic.

Laura was a gifted singer/songwriter who never got the chance to record her own work. She did however record a cover version of ‘The Power of Love’ the night before her death. Her family went on to release this song showcasing her talent in 2002.

Laura was passionate about music, how people relate to the lyrics and the impact they have on their lives.

10 years on, her family have now decided to release a charity tribute single ‘Beautiful Angel’ in her memory. The song has been written especially for the occasion and is aiming to raise much needed funds for Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary.

The song will be released on June 3 and is available from

To mark the release a night of music will be held in Tartaraghan Church Hall.

With barbecue reception and live music, the event will look back at Laura, the music and poetry she loved, as well showcasing the song and Crosskennan Lane Animal Sanctuary.
