Let Me Put Death Fight Behind Me, Pleads Dublin Beauty Brooke; GIRL AT CENTRE OF MURPHY ROW SAYS IT'S ALL IN PAST NOW


Byline: JIM GALLAGHER

THE beauty queen at the centre of the row which led to Brian Murphy's death said yesterday she was trying to put the shocking ordeal behind her.

Comments made about wannabe model Brooke McVeagh allegedly sparked off the brutal fight that led to the death of 18-year-old Brian outside Club Annabel in Dublin.

Brooke, who once posed with Westlife dressed as an angel in a white bikini after they had seven No 1 hits, said she had not been in touch with any of her former friends since the tragedy.

Blackrock College old boy Andrew Frame told detectives he believed Brian Murphy was taunting him about his friendship with Brooke while holidaying with his parents.

It was this that triggered off the brutal fight that led to Brian's death on August 31, 2000.

Brooke, who was also 18 at the time, was friendly with Brian's friends from Clongowes Wood College.

The one-time Miss County Dublin, said yesterday: "It's in the past. I haven't touched any of the guys since the incident outside Anabel's. I don't want to talk about how I feel about it because I was involved with both sides.

"I met the guys in Spain, I go there all the time and it's a scene. We became friends. We met by accident.

"I want to keep how I feel to myself. It's all in the past now."

The beautiful 5ft 9in southsider met Andrew Frame in the millionaires' resort of Puerto Banus near Marbella on the Costa del Sol where they were both holidaying with their parents.

At the time of Brian's death they had known each other for two years.

Frame, who was cleared of manslaughter and of violent disorder, told gardai: "I was with a girl, Brooke McVeagh, while I was on holiday in Spain.
