Hear Irish Times Political Correspondent Harry McGee as he joins Connacht Tribune Editor Dave O’Connell in conversation on McGee’s new book, The Murderer and the Taoiseach, about Malcolm Macarthur and the sensational murders that almost toppled an Irish government.

Harry McGee has retraced the happenings of Summer 1982, when two innocent young people – Bridie Gargan and Dónal Dunne – were murdered by aristocrat Malcolm Macarthur. Macarthur was captured in the home of the State’s top law officer, Attorney General Patrick Connolly, and the scandal attracted worldwide headlines and resulted in untold damage to Taoiseach Charles Haughey.
