Long Description:
The Donnelly family emigrated from Ireland in 1847 and established their farmstead here. A long series of events, which are well documented on many websites, led to a feud of massive proportions between the Donnelly family and members of the community, which was then the Township of Lucan-Biddulph.

Late on the evening of February 4, 1880, a mob stormed the house, killed all the occupants and set the home ablaze.

The story does not end there as the entire kept the conspiracy a complete secret. This was to the point that the police, lawyers and the judges were powerless to convict a single murderer.

The Vengeance of the Black Donnellys is a fictionalized tale that picks up where The Black Donnellys left off -- at the grim scene of their grave. What ever happened to the members of the mob that clubbed, stabbed, shot, and burned the two Donnelly parents, two of their sons, and a visiting niece? Why was no one ever convicted of their brutal murders? Who was the mysterious mastermind behind the mob? What happened to the surviving Donnellys? Find out the answers to these and other (some still unanswered) questions in this spellbinding sequel to The Black Donnellys.
