When the President calls
When the President calls
Across the Line 9.99

Garbhan Downey

Football Has Never Been So Dangerous.

Its more than fifteen years since the Irish ceasefires, and the natives are happy to grow fat grazing on the peace dividend. Well, most of them at least. Truth is, Harry the Hurler former chief executive of The Boys Inc is bored. So when his old adversary Switchblade Vic proposes a little bet over a football tournament, whats the worst that can happen? Okay... apart from a full-blown litany of bombings, murder, and a lurid plot to blackmail the British Prime Minister into redrawing the Northern border?

In two beats of a Lambeg drum, all sides are back to their old villainy, and the streets are littered with more stray limbs than Sex in the City.

Rival team managers Dee-Dee Dunne and Gigi McCormick have but one goal: to play fair and stay married in the process.

A superb blend of comedy, political dirty tricks, grisly murder and bizarre twists! Sunday World
