The Wexford Trilogy: A Handful of Stars; Poor Beast in the Rain; Belfryby Billy Roche
Set in a local dilapidated snooker hall, A HANDFUL OF STARS tells the story of Jimmy Brady, a young Wexford tearaway who refuses to abide by the rules and regulations that are applied in this so-called man's world, and his innocent sidekick, Tony, who yearns to belong; a world that is inhabited by a worn-out boxer, a contrary caretaker, an obnoxious loudmouth and a wily detective. Jimmy bucks the system every chance he gets, and everything is hunky dory until his girlfriend, Linda, ditches him, which drives him over the edge. Jimmy goes on the rampage with a shotgun, robbing a little corner shop and hitting a young cop with the butt of the gun. In the final scene he is holed up like a fugitive in the pool hall as he waits for the detective to come and get him.
