The Deposition of Father McGreevy

The Deposition of Father McGreevy

€2.95
In a London pub in the 1950s, editor William Maginn is intrigued by a mention of the strange - and reputedly shameful - demise of a remote mountain village in County Kerry, where he was born. Maggin returns to Kerry and uncovers an astonishing tale: both the account of the destruction of a place and the tragedy of an increasingly isolated village where all the women mysteriously die - leaving the priest, Father McGreevy, to cope with insoluble problems. As war rages through Europe, McGreevy struggles to preserve what remains of his parish, against the rough mountain elements and the grief and superstitions of his people, and the growing distrust of the town below.
