Noleen Murphy ..Born and Murdered on 4th April 1973


Cynthia Murphy



In the above photo I am nearly 10 years old, less than a year after this photo was taken I was pregnant. Look how neglected I look and distressed and disturbed even then when the photo was taken I was enduring horrific sexual abuse by my father, two brothes, and a local paedophile ring. I attended school all through this abuse and up until the day I gave birth my school knew I was pregnant and did nothing. Four more siblings would attend school after me and they were all horrifically abused and neglected too, three of them ended their lives due to the abuse because no one did anything to save us. My daughter was murdered when she was new born in 1973,  no convictions have ever been brought against her murderers, despite the Garda knowing who they are. I gave birth at the age of 11 to my daughter Noleen Murphy in my family home, she was murdered by my mother. My parents were selling me to a local paedophile ring of which 3 members were local police officers, one of these officers was present on the night of the murder and worked on her murder case but has never been brought to justice.

    Reading your book has inspired me and I am now back in Ireland interning. I hope you find justice. Your story was truly inspiring. You have come so far and I could not even begin to explain how. Many in your situation would have given up hope, but you held on for justice. Thank you for getting your story out there and persevering.
