Based on the real life of Bridget Mary Larkin, aka Tipperary Mary. Set in 1950s Ireland, we follow the traumatic story of a young girl torn from the love of her life and beaten and raped by her own brother. When her daughter, Phyllis, is born she is forced to give her up. But will she reunite with her true love again...?
Set in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, in the 1970s, this is a touching yet hilarious account of the agonies and absurdities of growing up in a backwater of pebbledash and Space Invaders. Teenagers Declan Lydon and his trusted friend Spit Maguire stumble together through their adolescence.
It's August 1969 and Northern Ireland is burning. Catholics are marching for civil rights and loyalist attacks have brought the British army onto the streets to quell the riots. In the middle-class suburbs of south Dublin, the political atmosphere that is transforming the North finds an unlikely convert in law student Kieran Conway.
A misfit man finds a misfit dog. Ray, aged fifty-seven, 'too old for starting over, too young for giving up', and One Eye, a vicious little bugger, smaller than expected, a good ratter. Both are accustomed to being alone, unloved, outcast - but they quickly find in each other a strange companionship of sorts.
