    Michael Manning Executed in 1954

    Michael Manning Executed in 1954

    Between 1923 and 1954, the Irish State executed twenty-nine people who had been convicted of murder. Almost all of these executions were carried out in the hanghouse at Mountjoy Prison.  The prisoners' remains were buried in unmarked graves behind the prison walls. The last person to meet this fate was Michael Manning, who was hanged sixty years ago this month.   Tim Carey told Lorcan Clancy the story of Michael Manning. Hanged for Murder: Irish State Executions by Tim Carey is published by The Collins Press.
