This book examines the phenomenon of infanticide in Ireland from 1850 to 1900, examining a sample of 4,645 individual cases of infant murder, attempted infanticide and concealment of birth. Evidence for this study has been gleaned from a variety of sources, including court documents, coroners' records, prison files, parliamentary papers, and newspapers. Through these sources, many of which are rarely used by scholars, attitudes towards the crime, the women accused of the offence, and the victim, are revealed. Although infant murder was a capital offence during this period, none of the women found guilty of the crime were executed, suggesting a degree of sympathy and understanding towards the accused. Infanticide cases also allude to complex dynamics and tensions between employers and servants, parents and pregnant daughters, judges and defendants, and prison authorities and inmates. This book highlights much about the lived realities of nineteenth-century Ireland.

"Crime narratives provide one of the most vivid means of accessing the reality of life and criminality in the early modern period. With an extended introduction setting the narratives in their social, national and international context, this collection should appeal as much to students of law, crime and society, as to those with an interest in the history of printing, publishing, language and reading."--BOOK JACKET.

Explores the mysteries and stories behind the most notorious air crashes in Ireland. In those rare instances when things do go seriously wrong in flight, the results are usually horrific. We in Ireland have had a number of unfortunate and, in some cases, unexplained incidents, with deadly results. Why did the survivors of a KLM flight spend hours fighting for their lives in the Shannon mudflats while they waited for help which never came from the airport just minutes away? What really downed the Aer Lingus Viscount at Tusker Rock? Was the US Globemaster which vanished off the Irish coast really carrying an atom bomb? In a painstakingly researched book, aviation writer Michael O'Toole explores the causes, traces the lives, tragedies, skill, bravery, heroism and possible human error involved in some of our mysterious air disasters.

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book provides the most in-depth study of capital punishment in Scotland between the mid-eighteenth and early nineteenth century to date. Based upon an extensive gathering and analysis of previously untapped resources, it takes the reader on a journey from the courtrooms of Scotland to the theatre of the gallows. It introduces them to several of the malefactors who faced the hangman’s noose and explores the traditional hallmarks of the spectacle of the scaffold. It demonstrates that the period between 1740 and 1834 was one of discussion, debate and fundamental change in the use of the death sentence and how it was staged in practice. In addition, the study provides an innovative investigation of the post-mortem punishment of the criminal corpse. It offers the reader an insight into the scene at the foot of the gibbets from which criminal bodies were displayed and around the dissection tables of Scotland’s main universities where criminal bodies were used as cadavers for anatomical demonstration. In doing so it reveals an intermediate stage in the long-term disappearance of public bodily punishment.

I'm just as good as bloody Pierrepoint. In his small pub in Oldham, Harry is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? Amongst the cub reporters and sycophantic pub regulars, dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news, a peculiar stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit. Don't worry. I may have my quirks but I'm not an animal. Or am I? One for the courts to discuss. Martin McDonagh's Hangmen premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2015.
