The Cabbage Garden Girl | Episode 4


In September 1928, the body of a teenage girl was found lying in a cabbage garden in Duncummin, Emly in County Tipperary.

The subsequent inquest deemed there to have been nothing suspicious about her death concluding that she had been gored by a cow; however four months later, events took a dramatic turn when a suspect was arrested and charged with her murder.

Following a trial, held in 1929, the judge in his summing up, concluded that ‘on the whole, it was a strange and mysterious case’.
