9 Bourke Angela. The Burning of Bridget Cleary. A True Story.
UK Pimlico 1999 0712665900 / 9780712665902 Soft Cover Very Good 
Previous owner's name inside, pages lightly tanning with a little foxing in places. In 1895 twenty-six-year-old Bridget Cleary disappeared from her house in rural Tipperary. At first, some said that the fairies had taken her into their stronghold in a nearby hill, from where she would emerge, riding a white horse. But then her badly burned body was found in a shallow grave. Her husband, father, aunt and four cousins were arrested and charges, while newspapers in nearby Clonmel , and then in Dublin, Cork and London and further afield attempted to make sense of what had happened. In this lurid and fascinating episode, set in the last decade of the nineteenth century, we witness the collision of town and country, of storytelling and science, of old and new. The torture and burning of Bridget Cleary caused a sensation in 1895 which continues to reverberate more than a hundred years later.

D/W is un-clipped, it has slight shelf rubbing to edges, generally a very good copy, tight and clean. Previous owner's name inside. The assassination of the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Lord Frederick Cavendish, and the Under-Secretary, Thomas Burke, on May 6th 1882, was a profound shock to Victorian England and Ireland. The final episode in an eventful period of Anglo-Irish relations, which saw the rise of the 'New Departure' movement against British overlordship, and the destruction of the powers of law and order in rural Ireland, the assassination put paid to Parnell's hope of practical settlement with Gladstone. The Phoenix Park Murders tells the story of these troubled years and examines the crime that so shamed Irishmen and shattered English complacency.
