A Border Station

Author:

Shane Connaughton

Synopsis:

For the son of the local sergeant in an isolated Garda station on the border between Cavan and Fermanagh, life is balanced between the brooding, taciturn presence of his father, whom he loves and fears in equal measure, and the reassurance of his warm and witty mother. His world is narrowed to lakes, woods, hayfields, country lanes and the amazing characters he encounters - tinkers, drinkers, publicans, policemen, farmers and the tantalising older sister of his Protestant friend. Amidst the drumlins and bogs, the boy's imagination roams free and unfettered. And at night, lulled by the rhythm of his mother's fleecy breathing, he finds solace. But change is coming. It's time to grow up...

An insignificant Irish border village at the tail-end of the 1950s. The Sergeant is nervous. His men are lined up for inspection in the day room of the Garda station. Chief Superintendent 'The Bully' Barry is on the warpath, and any slip-ups will reflect badly on the Sergeant. But what can he do with the men under his command - all of them forcibly transferred from other more important stations in more important towns? On the cusp of manhood, his son is drawn in by these rough and ready men, stuck in this place and time, when all he wants is a chance to leave and start his life anew. Life at home in the station's married quarters is both comfort and knife-edged, ruled over by his by-the-book father and his gentle, emotional mother.

Alexandra Connor

Synopsis:

Alison had been blessed by nature all her life - only I knew the other, darker side of her character. And only I knew the pain - the torment - of a jealousy that could never be assuaged. Throughout our childhood, she stood in golden light, centre stage, while I, blinking through heavy spectacles, looked on... As we grew to adulthood, it seemed that the path fate had charted for her was smooth and straight and clear. Gradually I resigned myself to staying in her shadow, playing out the role of second sister. I would have been content that way - if only she had not fallen in love with Mark Ward...
