Mary Boyle: the Untold Story (trailer)


A documentary, written and directed by Gemma O'Doherty, about the case of Ireland's youngest missing person. Mary Boyle vanished on her grandparents' remote farm in Donegal in March 1977. She was six years of age. Her remains have never been found. The documentary reveals allegations by retired senior officers that a politician requested the chief suspect not be arrested.

Her case is one of a few, such as the murder of Fr Molloy in Offaly, the Shane Touhy disappearance, and the Pender case, among others.

My tribute verse to Mary Boyle is "Pretty Smiles and Pigtails"
