This three part podcast series investigates one of Ireland’s most enduring murder mysteries. Maamtrasna is a remote mountain community on the Mayo-Galway border. Events there in August 1882 shocked the world when a group of unidentified individuals attempted to brutally massacre three generations of the Joyce family.
Given the location of the Joyce family home was so isolated it was clear that the victims neighbours must have known the perpetrators. However no one in the community would speak to the police and it was a complete mystery as to why the Joyces had been attacked.
