A young American found a home she loved between the sea and the mountains in West Cork. A land-obsessed farmer finally found a bride.
Together, they had a beautiful, smiling child. But the fairytale turned to a nightmare for Rebecca Saunders when her husband Martin drowned their little girl and then himself.
In a haze of grief, she allowed Clarissa to be buried in Martin’s arms in a lonely West Cork graveyard. Eight years after her daughter’s tragic death, Rebecca tells Liz Dunphy their story.
