Ireland is a magical land whose origins are lost in the mists of mythology but nevertheless is still intertwined with it even today. There are fairies and leprechauns still to be found walking along the boreens at night or hiding in hazel thickets and ring forts by day if you know where to look. And the wise man knows to leave a jar of poitín out for the little folk. While they are shy, they can be mischievous if not placated.

Ireland is also a heroic land, where great warriors once roamed the verdant green hills doing battle with invaders intent on despoiling the land. And even today, there are seanchaithe telling the legends of  Cúchulainn, Lug Lámthota and Fionn mac Cumhaill around the turf fires in the west of Ireland.

Ireland is also a tragic land.  'Tis a land of tears and sorrow, of lost love and unfulfilled potential. And even today, this tragedy continues as two irreconcilable forces clash against each other, mindlessly destroying all that they touch.

Set in 1924 just at the end of the first Troubles. this is a story of two young lovers, caught between those opposing forces,  but still in Ireland, a still a magical land of mythology, heroes and tragedy.
