A MAN stabbed to death in Galway. A woman bludgeoned with a brick in Howth. Staff locked at gunpoint into a strongroom in Wicklow. A young woman murdered in Ranelagh on Wednesday night.
Some said last week that you are less likely to suffer deadly violence in Ireland than in many other countries. But it does not feel that way.
Ireland is a small island. We do not have to be stumped when it comes to enforcing the law, and doing so fairly across every social class.
