Slapdash Assassin - final week
County Meath, Ireland. Jerome, raised by his Grandfather, ex-Gardai Inspector Seamus, has dedicated his life to finishing the work Seamus left unfinished; cleaning Ireland of the criminals that the law cannot touch. By any means necessary. This is Ireland, however, where history, particularly family history, has a habit of getting in the way.
Enter a Catholic priest with his own confession to make, a self confessed “bad Bishop”, a school teacher whose lessons are just beginning, and a shadowy figure for whom the troubles never ended... GET TICKETS HERE
