Mary Aylward
Paul Kirby / Kirby Books


6 x 9 - 126 Pages

Subtitle: The Murder, The Arrest, The Trial. Her Childhood, Her Children, Her Execution

The Murder that Shocked the County.
The Hangings that Shook the Country.
Were Richard and Mary Aylward hanged because they were Catholic?
Was she a cold-blooded murderer or a fearful wife protecting her husband?
Was Mary pregnant when executed?
Did three children need to be made orphans?

Author and playwright Paul Kirby digs into the archives of Ireland, the United States and Canada to trace the lives of Mary and Richard Aylward as they leave the potato famine and prejudice behind, only to meet tragedy ahead of them in North Hastings, and death on the gallows in 1862 in Belleville.
