There is however more to this story than meets the eye. Over the course of a six month investigation, one which lead the presenter of this documentary Paul Connolly across Europe and home again. Connolly drilled down to the very core of Rathkeale’s many secrets, answering questions which for decades now have cast long dark shadows over the town the travellers plan to one day take over completely.
