For one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of his local cemetery, to make way for new arrivals.

Editorial Reviews

The Guardian (UK)
Mr. McDonagh's great strength is that he combines a love of traditional storytelling with the savage ironic humour of the modern generation...In A SKULL IN CONNEMARA, a gravedigger, whose job is to disinter the bones of seven-year-old corpses and smash them to pulp, is hotly suspected of killing his wife.
