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.
