Two years after a man was shot dead by a dissident republican vigilante group, his mother has appealed for fresh information to catch his killers.

Andrew Allen, from Londonderry, was shot dead at his home near Buncrana in County Donegal on 9 February 2012.

Republican Action Against Drugs (RAAD), said it carried out the murder. His family have denied RAAD's claim that he was a drug dealer.

Mr Allen's mother, Donna Smith, said "the entire family's still suffering".

"We had a little service at the graveside on Sunday and after two years, so many people still turned out for it," said Ms Smith.

"Andrew's partner is still devastated. She's like a broken woman. We just feel so much for her.

"His wee boy will make his first communion this year and he won't be there. He would be so proud of him.

"We had to tell his children that bad men came and that their daddy had to go to heaven.

"More information is needed. Anyone that knows anything should come forward. It will never bring Andrew back but it will give us some closure that they aren't just walking about the streets."
