Girl at the GPO

In 2013, an upset and distressed young girl was found wandering in Dublin. In need of help, members of An Garda Síochána - the Irish police - brought her to the children's hospital. When they began speaking with her, she didn't talk but did draw pictures suggesting she was in serious trouble. What followed was one of the most unusual Garda investigations ever seen, and it became a global news story. The answers to that investigation lay with a woman named Samantha Azzopardi. Fast forward almost 10 years, and the girl at the GPO is still making headlines... (2022) Narrated by Áine Lawlor. Recorded and produced by Tim Desmond, Sharon Davis and Nicoline Greer. Production assistance from Liam O'Brien, Daemon Fairless, Ashley Mak and Eunice Kim. Original music soundtrack composed by Paddy Flynn.
