Overview

A story of paradoxes of morality and behaviour, Cassidy's Cross gives a kaleidoscope view of the fictional area of Doonbay in 1960's County Waterford. The picture is fractured and tangled, with petty crime, affairs, illicit pregnancy, rape and murder among the happenings. Set against the backdrop of a spent copper-mining area, the story unfolds to reveal a hotbed of secrets. The school, church, quarry and the village pub are all focal points of interest, with a bit of cross-roads dancing and a donkey derby thrown in for good measure. Two brothers are the key characters; James 'Ringyboy' Ring, and the older tearaway Johnny who is home from holiday in London. James uncovers a letter which literally has an explosive effect on the citizens. The not so good citizens of Cassidy's Cross
