Episode 83: Kiss My Arts – Ken Boyle
This week we’re talking about murder and intrique in Leitrim almost a century ago. Órla McNabola visits Ken Boyle in his Dalkey home to talk about his relative Dr. Muldoon who was shot dead in Mohill during the civil war period in the 1920’s.
His murder appeared to be connected to the discovery of a priest and his teenage housekeeper attempting to leave a baby on a Dublin street just a number of weeks previously.
Ken who had previously been part of a RTE radio documentary on the subject decided to put his research down on paper and with Tim Desmond, the RTE documentarian, they tell the story of the sequence of events linking both incidents.
