Day 1: A Very Irish Murder in Cincinnati

While not very seasonal, it was one of my favourite shows of 2019. I stumbled across the story of Mollie Gilmartin by accident in an archive and I was immediately intrigued. Ultimately I spent a few weeks tracing her fascinating but tragic life. This episode was really enhanced by Muireann Hogan’s great narrations.

In April 1894 Cincinnati’s Irish American community was rocked by a shocking and brutal murder. It was so scandalous that many newspapers in Ireland refused to even mention it, even though both the victim and the perpetrator were Irish.
