An idyllic island reliant on tourism from across the world but with a population increasingly impoverished. A young woman just starting out on life with a new partner brutally murdered for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Breda Waters & Des Kelly’s murders aren’t getting much coverage – they were from Limerick and not related to anyone of note. Limerick has been heading murder statistics for a long time and when they happen now they rarely receive much media focus.
