The Liffey, Looking West

DEEPLY REGRETTED BY

Originally written for television, Deeply Regretted By is an account of a tragedy affecting a woman in London who discovers, on the death of her "husband", that their married life was a lie. The play reflects the sociopolitical realities of Irish men marrying and starting families both at home and abroad, principally after they were forced to emigrate for work. Presenting a brave and revealing account of a hidden layer of Irish society, this story first appeared as Death in Kilburn in the Irish Times, also included in this volume.
