A woman who died after being stabbed more than twenty-eight times has been sentenced to life in prison. The victim‚ Pauline Kilkenny‚ was 59 when she was killed in November 2018. Joseph Dolan‚ the man who killed her‚ was afflicted with personality disorder and had taken prescription drugs before killing her. He referred to her as his mother. Her body was discovered by her sister after she failed to show up for work. Dolan denied the charge of murder but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. Ms Kilkenny suffered eight stab wounds to the head and two to her torso. Her back was also stabbed. She also suffered a serious head injury from blunt force trauma. Her home is a mile from Cornacully Road‚ midway between Belcoo and Garrison. Police say Dolan had 36 prior convictions‚ 34 in the Republic of Ireland. He was previously sentenced to three years in 2013 for robbery‚ beating a pensioner in Drogheda and stabbing a taxi driver. At the hearing on Tuesday‚ Dolan was remanded in custody until 10 December. His solicitor said he would not seek bail. Kilkenny lived in a bungalow off Cornacully Road‚ which is located about half way between Garrison and Belcoo. Her sister found her body around lunchtime on Tuesday. She had been working at Lilley's Centra in Enniskillen for two years.

Regardless of the severity of Dolan's mental illness‚ his conviction was shocking.
