The most theatrical manifestation of the law’s drama is the trial, and mankind has a remarkable interest in sensational legal cases. Famous Irish Trials invites us to indulge ourselves in some of the most intriguing and gruesome trials of the turn of this century.

This book is not devoted exclusively to murders. From the authors keen interest in politics he details, amongst others, the trial of the enigmatic tension which subsequent aftermath has passed into folklore. Famous Irish Trials follows in a classical tradition. As McDonnell Bodkin himself says: "There is nothing the public so love to read as good, savage, sensational murder".

This is a re-print of Famous Irish Trials, first published in 1918.

M. McDonnell Bodkin was born in 1850. He studied law at University College Dublin and was called to the bar in 1877. In 1907 he was appointed County Court Judge for Clare.
