It is the Easter weekend of 1949, the date of the declaration of the Irish Republic, but in the city of ‘Ballycastle’, Martin Melody, a pub-crawling university student, and his disreputable friends are too busy drinking and lusting after girls to pay much attention to this significant political development. Breandán Ó hEithir, drawing upon his rich personal experience of life in the west of Ireland, paints a rackety picture of sniffy landladies, crackpot academics, hectoring clergymen, bosomy barmaids, warring politicians, cute hoors of Garda sergeants, dolled-up virgins, fierce-eyed old warriors full of memories of the Civil War, and dockside down-and-outs in this, one of Ireland’s most evocative and hilarious novels of modern times.
