Who Killed Honor Bright?

Who Killed Honor Bright?


This factual book focuses on the death of Honor Bright in Ireland in 1925 and reveals how authorities in the Irish Free State harrassed and then murdered her. Afterwards she was maligned as a prostitute and her assassin acquitted. It portrays corruption and a lack of legal restraint at the heart of the new government.

The newly established Garda Sióchana was used to spread deceitful rumours and coerce witnesses in order to conceal the victim’s real identity and the reason for her death. False evidence, perjury and the forceful suppression of potential witnesses at a sham trial led to huge public demonstrations, but newspapers were coerced into printing only authorised stories or facing the consequences from the Garda and the Minister of Justice.
