The village of Larrimah, 500 km south of Darwin, has a population of 11. It should be 12, but one of their regulars went missing the week before Christmas in 2017. His name was Paddy Moriarty, and if both names suggested Irish background, he had indeed come originally from County Limerick. In February this year, the NT police offered a reward of $250,000 for information that might help them understand what had happened to him. Right now, we do not know whether he is alive or dead, though the most common belief is that he is dead. Most likely, murdered.
