Fiona Donohoe speaks at a rally in northern Belfast about what would have been Noah’s 16th birthday.

Several hundred people attended the rally, many calling on PSNI to release all sensitive material related to the case.

In June last year, a 14-year-old student at St Malachy College was found dead in a stormwater drain in northern Belfast, six days after she went missing.

Ms. Donohoe told the event: “It should be Noah’s 16th dessert today and he should stand with me to celebrate. But there’s nothing sweeter than standing here fighting for answers for Noah today.”

“We still stand here with more questions than answers.

“Why am I angry when they (PSNI) haven’t said any dishonesty, why are they saying they can’t give four files of information and facts?”

The rally culminated with a convoy of vehicles from the Belfast Zoo along Antrim Road in support of the Donohoe family.

Earlier this month, the investigation into Noah’s death was delayed because his mother’s legal representative raised concerns about the time left to deal with several outstanding issues.

The inquiry was originally scheduled to begin on January 10 next year.

Legal representatives for Fiona Donohoe expressed concern that PSNI is seeking to modify information in four files related to the investigation prior to the investigation.

At a meeting of the police board earlier this month, political representatives had questioned PSNI about the matter.

Sinn Féin’s Gerry Kelly said Noah Donohoe’s family needed transparency.

A senior official told the board that the coroner will help assess what is relevant to the investigation and what can be done further to relax the public interest.
