THE BLACK DONNELLYS: CANADA'S TRAGIC ROUSTABOUTS
The story of the Black Donnellys is a blend of fact and lore that had me, in researching it, enjoying the task immensely. I was fortunate to come across not only two remarkable books on the subjects, but also a handsome, well-done website devoted to the massacre of the Donnellys of Lucan.
