In the late 1700’s, in Roscommon, Ireland … a woman named Betty and her son lived in horrible poverty. Although uncommon for someone raised in such conditions, Betty was literate … so she taught her son to read and write. She would constantly remind her son that only money would bring him happiness … and when he was old enough … he left Roscommon to find his fortune – in America!
Years later, one dark evening, a tall, well-dressed gentleman knocked on Betty’s door asking for a place to stay. She opened her house to him, but later that night, as he lay sleeping … Betty crept quietly into his room … and murdered the man for his money!
As Betty sat rifling through the man’s belongings, she discovered this ‘stranger’ was in fact … her son!
Overcome by the horror of her actions, Betty ran screaming into the streets … confessing her guilt. She was arrested, stood trial and was condemned to death – by hanging!
On the day of her execution … as Betty and several other criminals were being led into the yard … they were informed the executioner had “called in sick” … and the sheriff was refusing to personally perform the executions.
Taking the term ‘carpe diem’ to a whole new level …Betty asked that her life be spared and in return, she’d hang the rest of the prisoners herself!
The sheriff agreed … and Betty got to work! “Lady Betty” was so efficient and capable … that she was appointed Roscommon’s Hang Woman … a job with a yearly salary … as well room and board!
