Christmas Day 1929 was an ordinary working day for Larry Griffin, the postman in Stradbally, Co. Waterford. But he didn't return home after work. Apart from an abandoned bicycle on a country road, no trace of him could be found. Despite the lack of a body, ten local people were charged with his murder. The defendants included two gardaí, the school teacher, the publican, his wife and two of their children. But when the state's only witness to the alleged murder withdrew his evidence, the case against all of them collapsed. Using newly available evidence from Garda files, which paints a sordid picture of lies, conspiracy, intimidation and Garda brutality, The Missing Postman re-examines the case and asks - What really happened to Larry Griffin?
