Book launch: Though the Bodies Fall by Noel O'Regan

Join us for the launch of Though the Bodies Fall, the debut novel by Noel O'Regan. Noel O'Regan was raised in Co. Kerry and is the recipient of a number of prizes, including a 2022 Arts Council Next Generation Artist Award. His fiction has been published in the Stinging Fly, Ambit and the London Magazine.

Though the Bodies Fall is 
a powerful novel set on an Irish clifftop - a story about duty, despair and the chance encounters upon which fate turns. Micheal Burns lives alone in his family's bungalow at the end of Kerry Head in Ireland. It is a picturesque place, but the cliffs have a darker side to them: for generations they have been a suicide black spot. Micheal's mother saw the saving of these lost souls - these visitors - as her spiritual duty, and now, in the wreckage of his life, Micheal finds himself continuing her work. When his sisters tell him that they want to sell the land, he must choose between his siblings and the visitors, a future or a past.
