Reveals the truth behind the headlines of Brendan O’Donnell’s tragic life

Out of print. Our last copies.

The authors recount the story of Brendan O'Donnell's tragic life. After absconding from the Trinity Detention Centre he turned up at Tony Muggivan door in Co Clare. When they first met Brendan it became clear to them that he needed to be in psychiatric care and not in a detention centre, but their attempts to get help from the authorities were in vain, and over the next five years he began to live rough.

He then began a campaign of armed robbery, mayhem and finally murder of an innocent mother and child as well as a Catholic priest. He was convicted and died in prison under mysterious circumstances. The authors also explain how they sought help for this young man knowing that something targic would happen but the system failed to respond and ultimately failed this sick young man.
