    68 - Mountain Mysteries: The murder of Phyllis Murphy

    Just before Christmas 1979, 23 year old Phyllis Murphy disappeared while waiting on a bus in Newbridge, Co Kildare. Her body was found in an isolated spot 25 miles away at Turlough Hill, Co Wicklow a month later. 
    After a huge search and investigation, the gardai had no leads as to who was responsible for her death.But in 1998, DNA in Phyllis' case was tested as part of Operation Trace. As a result of that, 53 year old John Crerar - a neighbour of Phyllis' remaining family - stood trial at the Dublin Central Criminal Court.

    67 - Honor Bright: Murder in the Free State

    In 1925, while the Irish Free State was still in it's infancy after the close of the civil war, the body of a young woman was found dead lying at a lonely cross roads in South County Dublin. Her name was Honor Bright, a woman who made her living as a sex worker in town. 
    Two men were tried for her shooting death, but was her killing a the result of her "unfortunate" status, or part of an attempt to keep scandal away from the halls of power in a newly-independent Ireland?

    64 - Hostage at Derrada Woods: The story of Don Tidey

    64 - Hostage at Derrada Woods: The story of Don Tidey

    In the early 1980s, there was a series of kidnap-for-ransom crimes committed in the Republic by the Provisional IRA in order to raise funds to finance their organisation and its terrorist operations here and in the UK.
    One of the victims of these abductions was prominent businessman, Don Tidey, and Englishman who was the senior executive of the Quinnsworth group of supermarkets. Tidey was held for 23 days in Derrada wood, Co Leitrim. He as rescued by the gardai and the army, but a garda probationer and an army private were killed during the operation.
    Though a number of people were charged in relation to the kidnap, no one has ever been charged in relation to the two killings.

I have now binged almost every episode and they are all fantastic. Si rad not only covers the crimes but also explores the cultural and societal implications of them. Truly excellent.

Excellent content!

Sinead does a fantastic job weaving together interesting stories from these awful crimes. She covers these crimes with respect and empathy for the victims and their loved ones and even for the families of the perpetrators when that is appropriate. Great job Sinead I plan to keep listening!
