The Macdermots of Ballycloran

Feemy Macdermot, a vulnerable rustic beauty, has a penurious father, and an unstable brother, Thady, who is an agent and rent collector of their increasingly unprofitable land. A romantic, Feemy is an obvious prey and she is duly seduced by Captain Miles Ussher, a British policeman.

As Ussher is about to take her away with him to Dublin the couple are surprised by Thady, who kills the captain; he goes into hiding , then eventually gives himself up. Inexorably, the Macdermots of Ballycloran are ruthlessly extinguished one by one. In the meantime, there are sharp observations on an Ireland already nurturing all the ingredients of the Troubles, pointed up by the sympathetic character of the local priest, Father John.
