It is told, in part, using flashbacks from his exiled daughters as they are gathered back at the family home, Great Meadow, in the midlands of Ireland, to care for the ailing Moran. This classic novel confirms just how well he spent his time. While his play The Field deals very successfully with the conflict between old and new in the Irish country, The Contractors takes the rural character abroad. Our hero, Dan Murray, emigrated to England in and found work with other Irish exiles as a building labourer.
After years of watching from afar and gaining confidence, he sets up on his own as a building contractor. He hand-picks his own fresh team from various parts of Ireland and works on the theory that if his team does great work and finishes the job ahead of time then his reputation and profits will grow. Gault wounds the arsonist and, fearing repercussions, he plans to move the family to England.
Her parents are led to believe she has drowned. William Trevor guides us compellingly through a deeply lonely, loveless and guilt-ridden life in this unforgettable book.
Brilliant and brave; banned and burned. Two young Irish girls, Kate the narrator and Baba, leave the safety of the local convent behind them in search of adventure and love in the big city. Eneas McNulty longs for France and discovers he thinks a way of getting there: by enlisting in the British merchant navy.
He forsakes his childhood friend, Jonno Lynch, in the process. Eneas is shipped to Galveston, Texas instead of France and later returns to Sligo only to discover that the locals, including Jonno, have branded him a traitor. Eneas makes matters even worse by joining the Royal Irish Constabulary and escapes his ordered execution by travelling, pausing briefly to work in a French vineyard.

He also spends time in Nigeria but, accepting that you can take the Irish out of Ireland but you can never take Ireland out of the Irish, he returns to Sligo an old man ready to meet his punishment. The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty perfectly portrays how, even far away from the blatant corruption of the big cities, fear and jealously will seamlessly evolve into evil.
Originally published as Judith Hearne, this is a brilliant study of a woman, an alcoholic, relocated in Belfast in the bleak s. Brian Moore savagely paints the picture of how a lack of love has totally destroyed Judith Hearne, just as loveless lives did for many an Ulster soul like her. Northern Irish Cal has been a getaway driver in the murder of a police reserve. The deeper he falls, the worse he feels. This is another vitally significant rural novel which takes you through to the other side of the twitching curtains.
