A TALE OF TWO CITIES

Limerick city centre erupts with pride and glory as Munster seizes the Heineken Cup.

The strife-ridden suburb of Moyross echoes with the screams of burning children.

How did this vibrant, modern, sporting city become home to a ruthless criminal underworld?

Barry Duggan reveals exclusive information on topics such as the rise of the gangs, the escalation of violence, the innocent victims and the Garda attempts to regain control of the city.

Barry Duggan began his career in journalism when Limerick was hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

As Mid-Western correspondent with Independent Newspapers, he is well placed to witness and chronicle a decade of Limerick’s troubles.
