Bloody Women Summary

Bloody Women: Ireland's Female Killers by David M. Kiely

'Bloody Women' tells the stories of seventeen Irish murders, all committed by women. Some are notorious, some less well known: all reveal that the dark forces which drive men to murder are fully shared by women. Murder by a female hand can be just as brutal as by a man's. 'Bloody Women' contains drownings, shootings, stabbings and savage clubbings - as well as highlighting the ingenious methods by which some of Ireland's female killers disposed of their victims' corpses. Here are women who murdered their lovers; or who murdered relations in disputes over land and inheritance; here is Mamie Cadden, the Hume Street abortionist; Jane O'Brien from County Wexford who shot her own nephew in order to get possession of a farm; and Hannah O'Leary who killed and dismembered one of her elder brothers in County Cork. With murder sites from London to Donegal, from Down to Limerick, 'Bloody Women' is a chilling and unforgettable read.
