Is It Me? The Joseph Heffernan Story: Last Man Hanged in Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin. Early 20th Century British Injustice in Ireland. A century old Irish murder mystery is re-opened. Joseph Heffernan paid the ultimate price for the murder of Mary Walker in Mullingar, Ireland in 1909. Mary Walker was the innocent victim of a brutal murder. But was Joseph Heffernan also innocent of the crime? On 4 January 1910, Joseph Heffernan was executed in Kilmainham Gaol, having been tried and convicted of the murder of Mary Walker in Mullingar, the previous summer. Since that date, there have been whispers that Heffernan had simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time and that an innocent man was hanged as a result. When Jack Kiernan decided to look through the statements and court reports of the trial, he discovered a number of strange inconsistencies and anomalies that led him to believe that there may have been some foundation to these rumours. In Is It Me?, the author unpicks the evidence that sent Joseph Heffernan to his death, and speculates whether his conviction was the result of a sinister plot to disguise the identity of the real murderer. He carefully retraces the events preceding the tragic and brutal murder of Mary Walker and suggests a shocking alternative version of events. This edition has been revised and updated with new material that has come to light since first published in 2011.
