'A rare and special thing to be treasured - Bolger's rich, evocative language swells and surges, carrying the characters with confident ease through their multi-faceted and often arduous journey. It brings to life a pocket of Irish history which will now not be forgotten' - "Sunday Business Post". "The Ballymun Trilogy" is a unique attempt by a leading Irish playwright to capture the birth, demolition and regeneration of a satellite town. "From These Green Heights" was previously published on its own by New Island, while "The Townlands of Brazil" and "The Consequences of Lightning" are previously unpublished. Brilliantly theatrical and shifting seamlessly across time, "The Ballymun Trilogy" is a kaleidoscope of stories about love and tragedy and tenderness, a superbly realised history of the hidden lives of any city.
