It is a true story, her name was Collette Cronin, she was a neighbour of mine. I was about her age at the time and I still think of it to this day may she rest in peace.

Apparently it was her communion day she was 8 years old her name was Colette Cronin it happened in 1974 down by the doughcloyne I think it was not too sure.The man was said to be psycho or mentally ill and he had a twin brother. My nan knew a woman who lived down by togher school at the time and she seen the 2 littles girls pass by her house one of them being Colette then shortly after she seen a man and offered him a glass of water as he said he’s just going for a walk not knowing what was to happen next. So sad

I wonder is that scumbag Whealan going to be released? Read a few weeks ago he had been out on day release. Undoubtedly a psychopath, the prospect of him returning to Cork must be sickening for the surviving victim and the bereaved family.
