Byline: AILBHE JORDAN Data Correspondent

WATERFORD and Monaghan are Ireland's top blackspots for violent crime, the Irish Sunday Mirror can reveal.

Exclusive analysis of cases that have gone before the Central Criminal Court since 2012 reveals more people from the these counties have been charged with rape, murder or related crimes than any other part of Ireland.

Our shocking data probe has also discovered a higher proportion of people from Monaghan have stood trial for rape than anywhere else in Ireland over the past three years.

And Limerick is Ireland's killer capital with more murder cases involving defendants from the South Western county than anywhere else in Ireland between 2012 and 2014.

Since 2012, 326 people have gone before the Central Criminal Court charged with rape or attempted rape, while 184 people have appeared in the court charged with murder or attempted murder.
