Murder Most Local: Historic Murders of East Cork contains 47 true historical murder stories from East Cork. Some are well known cases that have lived on in folklore, others are long forgotten…
From Youghal to Fermoy and Aghada to Conna, a murder location is only ever a few miles away. Motives have not changed over the years – love, sex, drink and arguments about land. Some murders remain unsolved and others are obvious from the start who done it and why. Each story is completely different and unique.
As well as telling the story of these murders Peter O’Shea also describes how the legal system of the time functioned. At times justice is swift and brutal and some where the system protects its own.
It’s for you to decide who done it or whether it was murder at all.
