Overview

Confessions Of An Altar Boy is about growing up in rurual Ireland in the 1950/1960s, a time of great rural upheaval and change. The creamery, the horse and cart, cross-road dancing, travelling shows, the threshing machine...their days were numbered. Going to school across the Mass-path, thinning turnips for a shilling a drill, watching Audie Murphy and Randolph Scott in films that broke down halfway through every reel, being an altar boy and 'fiddling' the church collection boxes, learning to dance using a broomstick as a partner...rare memories of an age of innocence and deviance. Who flattened Fr Sinnott in the sacristy? What was the initiation ceremony at Flahavans Mills? What sort of shenanigans went on during the stations of the cross? And what about the trombone player in the band who couldn't play a note?
