Product Description

Product Description

They are some of Ireland’s most famous names, for all the wrong reasons. They are Ireland’s missing women, many of them murdered and their bodies hidden by evil killers who remain at large. They include Annie McCarrick, who was murdered in the Dublin-Wicklow mountains; Jo Jo Dullard, who was abducted and murdered while hitching a lift in Co. Kildare; and Fiona Pender, who was seven months pregnant when she was murdered and hidden at an unknown place in the midlands. And then there are Ireland’s missing children. What ever happened to little Mary Boyle, last seen walking near her grandparents’ home in Co. Donegal? And where is Philip Cairns, who was abducted from a Co. Dublin roadside while walking to school?

Missing is a disturbing book, but it is also a tribute to the remarkable bravery of ordinary families who have lost a loved one in the most cruel and unexplained of circumstances.

4.0 out of 5 stars The authors gives much but also assumes much. 20 Jun 2005
By Meaghan - Published on
As the title indicates, this is a group of case studies of several women and children who have disappeared without a trace in Ireland and Northern Ireland. While the writing is rather dry, the individual cases are very detailed and the author also includes personal information about the missing people and their families, which makes them come to life for the reader.

My only real objection is that Cummins invariably declares that the people he is writing about have been murdered. The book jacket, for instance, mentions "Annie McCarrick who was murdered in the Dublin-Wicklow mountains." Annie's remains have never been found, no suspects have been arrested, and there are no witnesses and no hard evidence to indicate that she is in fact dead, let alone murdered. Granted, she probably was, but the assumptions about the missing people's fates seriously detract from the author's credibility. Still, in spite of this the book's details making it worth looking at.
