Dervala’s Ashes

Dervala’s Ashes
This time 15 years ago I was standing outside Friar Tuck’s in Limerick, wrestling my first underage pints into submission with a curry chip[1] and watching the fights on the steps of the Redemptorist Fathers church opposite.

Life in Limerick in the 80s was nasty, brutish, and far too long. Please please please can I have a Green Card?

[1] An order of soggy fries topped with a huge dollop of curry sauce. Fondly known as ‘babyshit on chips’.
