Chaos and Conspiracy

Fellow Donegal Blogger, Gerard Cunningham, has recently released a book about the behaviour of members the GardaĆ­ in the McBrearty case in Raphoe:

... 'Chaos and Conspiracy' by Gerard Cunningham examines the framing of the McBrearty family in the wake of the death of Raphoe man Ritchie Barron and the tribunal which followed.

Mr Cunningham says that while some gardai won't like the book's contents others have already praised his efforts.

The Indo has a review and seems to like the book:

The review ends with the following:
Chaos and Conspiracy is a gripping account which will be read most avidly in Raphoe. But it should also be obligatory reading for the 14,000 members of the gardai and for those of us tempted to argue that the end justifies the means when it comes to combating crime.
