In 1976 the Cork to Dublin mail train was robbed of £200,000. Cormac Breatnach’s brother Osgur was arrested for it, confessed and was jailed for 12 years. But there was a catch. He didn’t do it. The devastation of the injustice was enormous as Osgur’s family tried to come to terms with what had happened. Cormac turned to music. (2019)
