Gogglebox Ireland had everyone in tears last night as Eileen spoke about her son's death
Viewers were left heartbroken after Gogglebox Ireland last night when Eileen opened up about her son's death.
Eileen, from Castleknock, appears on the show with her friend Angela.
They're firm favourites with the viewers, often acting as Agony Aunt types on the show. They were also the ones that brought us Michael Tea Higgins.
On last night's show, the mood was a lot sadder with a Channel 4 documentary in particular, A Killing In The Family, striking a cord with the audience. It was a documentary about people who have been affected by murder.
At the end of the show, Eileen turned to Angela and spoke about her son Tom's death saying:
"I was so mad when Tom died, so so angry. Someone said to me, you’ve an angel in heaven. I didn’t want an angel, I want my son."
It left the whole audience in tears.

This is very difficult to watch, and I agree with Eileen.... who wants an angel? #GoggleboxIRL
