“A hard-hitting drama threading together the events that lead to a series of harrowing murders committed by a man with a mental age of seven, and the subsequent trial that rocked 1990s Ireland.”
Based on true events that shocked Ireland in the 1990s, Property of the State tells the story of a disturbed young man by the name of Brendan O’Donnell as seen through the eyes of his sister Ann Marie. Piece by piece she threads together the events that ultimately lead to the harrowing murders of a young mother, her child and a local priest in the forest of East Clare, Ireland.
Ann Marie lived through it all. As the loving sister of a loving brother, she became the sister of a murderer and the sister of a man described as the most evil man in Ireland. She had not committed a crime, yet many saw her guilty by association.
