Ms McDonald described the murder of Lord Mountbatten ' who died along with two members of his family and a Co Fermanagh teenager ' on a fishing boat in County Sligo, Ireland, in 1979 as "heartbreaking". Her comments came a day after a funeral service was held for Philip, Lord Mountbatten's nephew, at Windsor Castle on Saturday. See PA story ULSTER Mountbatten.
