Conspiracy: Irish Political Trials
Between 1803 - 1916, seven infamous trials in Irish legal and political history took place. This book focuses on the plots, the perjuries and the dramatic clashes that ocured in these trials.
Each trial will show how the legal system was contaminated by a political agenda and how that agenda unwittingly incited great moments of legal drama such as the disintegration of the forger, Richard Pigott under the cross examination of Sir Charles Russell at the Parnell Commission.
Read also about the trials of Robert Emmet, Daniel O'Connell and the court martials after the Easter Rising.
