Robert Holohan's mother Majella has reportedly written to the Director of Public Prosecutions asking him to appeal against the sentence handed down to her son's killer.
Last Tuesday, Wayne O'Donoghue was given four years for the manslaughter of the Cork schoolboy.
The Holohans feel this was too lenient and have, since the victim’s impact statement at the end of the trial, raised questions over the nature of the relationship between their son and the defendant..
The office of the DPP now has until the February 21 to consider the state's position.
