Abstract: A chapter exploring media and crime in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland addresses two signally different jurisdictions. What little work there is from the Republic of Ireland relates largely to the media's role in a 1996 moral panic on gangland crime, while the literature on Northern Ireland encompasses a jurisdiction moving from a critical perspective on state/media relations to one now exploring representations of 'ordinary' crime. The chapter provides an overview of the content of crime in the media, public attitudes and fear of crime in the two jurisdictions within the context of international literature and theory.
