Rockadoon Shore Synopsis

Six Young Friends. One Watchful Neighbour. Two Days Alone. What Could Possibly Go Wrong? 'One of the most exciting Irish storytellers to have emerged in years' Gavin Corbett Cath is worried about her friends. DanDan is struggling with the death of his ex, Lucy is drinking way too much and Steph has become closed off. A weekend away is just what they need so they travel out to Rockadoon Lodge, to the wilds in the west of Ireland. But the weekend doesn't go to plan. JJ is more concerned with getting high than spending time with them, while Merc is humiliated and seeks revenge. And with long-ignored tensions now out in the open, their elderly neighbour Malachy arrives on their doorstep with a gun in his hands ...

Rockadoon Shore Press Reviews

'Rory Gleeson brilliantly nails the self-obsession of the young and entitled in this sharply observed tale of sex, drugs and Rockadoon Shore. A brand new and welcome voice speaking for the disenchanted and disaffected' Liz Nugent

'Fierce, funny, vivid, and compelling from the first line. Rory Gleeson is one of the most exciting Irish storytellers to have emerged in years' Gavin Corbett

'Filled with fascinatingly real characters and a plot as twisting as the remote Irish roads upon which it's set, Rockadoon Shore is an incredibly strong debut by author Rory Gleeson' Bookbag
