July 05 , 2008



Bouncer Brian Fitzgerald was murdered by members of Limerick’s notorious McCarthy-Dundon gang – because he refused to allow drugs to be sold inside a nightclub. Drug addict Sinead Kelly was stabbed to death – because she couldn’t pay off an €800 debt. Denis Donaldson was shot dead in a remote Donegal cottage – because he had admitted to being a British “mole” within the IRA. Jealous husband David Bourke murdered his wife Jean Gilbert –because she was leaving him for another man. Charlotte and Linda Mulhall (the so-called “Scissor Sisters”) murdered and dismembered Farah Swaleh Noor – because he was a violent man who constantly abused their mother.
Ken Foxe looks at these and many other recent killings in Ireland, and concludes that the motives in all of these cases can be summed up in one word: REVENGE. Ireland is often called a nation of begrudgers – but what happens when a grudge is held by a violent or unstable character? What happens when it’s left to fester in the mind of a psychopath? Or even when an otherwise ordinary person is pushed to the edge of sanity by abuse and violence? The results can often be bloody. REVENGE pulls no punches in describing how this most ancient of motives has led to so many murders.
