Twenty-nine people convicted of murder were hanged by the Irish State: the executions were carried out in Mountjoy by the Pierrepoint family. The last met his fate in 1954 but the often shocking stories of these men and one woman have been largely forgotten. Here, for the first time, are their tragic stories, some in graphic detail.
