The massacre of the Donnelly family.

Episode 5-15


An Irish immigrant family who settled in the backcountry of Upper Canada.

Physical and court fights over property, money, transport franchises, and other issues between the Donnelly family and their neighbors turned deadly one night in February 1880.

James Donnelly opened his front door one morning and was met by 15 to 20 disguised night riders.

The men killed the family then set the farm on fire.

Who did it and why? Was the Local Church involved? Who was guilty and innocent? Listen as Scott explains.
