In Kilgallan – a small quiet place on Ireland’s west coast – things get a little rowdy in Donovan’s Bar, sometimes, and the people carry their share of Ireland’s tragic history but generally the fights are happy, the songs are sad and the days are as rich as slow poured, peaty beer. Then things start happening – first to the children…Mikey Boyle’s auntie takes off all her clothes, takes his off as well and persuades him into the river…Then sixteen year old Marie Lally has a cord tied around her neck and her night gown raised by Mike O’Hara…Village tragedies.  A short eruption of horror – but at the heart of a nearby hill, something turns in its sleep, breathes…and awakes.
