Rainy in Glenageary -Irish True Crime | KT Review

True crime is littered with unsolved cases, Rainy in Glenageary looks at the original evidence in this murder case from 1999 and the evidence that has come to light since the original incident. A compelling watch with its own unusual approach, this true crime documentary is unlike any you’ve seen before.

I count three valid reasons to release this film. The first is that it reports a credible allegation Dun Laoghaire Gardaí physically assaulted at least one of Raonaid’s close friends during a regular police interview in 1999, without the slightest provocation and indeed their attitude toward her ‘crew’ in general was so accusatory that several teens just completely clammed up.

Rainy In Glenageary

Rainy in Glenageary explores the 1999 unsolved murder of 17-year-old Irish schoolgirl Raonaid Murray -known as Rainy.

The second reason is that some of this crew have recently begun re-thinking the events of late 1999 and it seems they do have further information, but after their previous alleged treatment by Gardaí in relation to such a traumatic event were naturally uncertain how to proceed and consented instead to internal audio recordings of their claims for our film’s research.

“If you like true crime docs, check out this one about a baffling Irish cold case…” -DAVID LUCARELLI

Yet the third and perhaps most compelling reason of all is that, following a number of Raonaid’s crew bravely opened up about such issues, we have evidence strongly suggesting that others vilified them for speaking out – a large red flag to our filmmaking team.
