Siobhan Mc Nally grew up in a Dublin inner-city terraced house in the late 1970s. Siobhan, happily for herself ,had few expectations beyond helping her mother take care of the boys, and peeling spuds for her Da’s dinner. Theirs was a little house inhabited by Jim and Lil Mc Nally,their four scruffy little lads,and Siobhan, their only daughter. Only, that is, until the arrival of Teresa Mary, who arrived into this world, unceremoniously, onto a copy of the Evening Herald, within a moments reach of the labour ward. Siobhans life would change forever. Her new charge and sister grew up more beautiful, sophisticated and tempestuous than the rest, but for Siobhan, fatally, much,much more dangerous…
The Sisters Mc Nally is a story woven between nostalgia, innocence, and life’s unexpected tragic diversions. It’s rich creation of Dublin in the not so distant past evokes a world of deep-seated community spirit,commitment to the family, and a familiar account of what all families understand, the troublemaker!
This story journeys us through four generations,where we experience everything and, ultimately,nothing changing. The big wheel of life is laid before us,and compels the reader to reflect on our own massively different, but remarkably similar journeys.
