I'm back! I needed something to do while self-isolating, and what's better to kill time and still be useful than research? Nothing, that's what. Anyway. Let's get into the case. Ireland has, in the last thirty years, become a go-to destination for weddings, honeymoons, and other vacations, and is home to just shy of 5 million people. The land, which has been inhabited since Neolithic times , has a long and storied history. With a lower crime rate, it's generally seen as a safe country to visit. But with the light, we must take the dark, and with the safety, we must accept the danger. In the 1990s, as many as eight women disappeared from a large area around Dublin, Ireland, and were never seen or heard from again. In the first part of this two-part post, we'll first cover the profiles of the missing. Next week, we'll talk about the investigations that followed. There is a lot to unpack in these cases, so strap in and let's go.
