FROM THE PUBLISHER - For Eneas McNulty, a happy, innocent childhood in County Sligo in the early 1900s gives way to an Ireland wracked by violence and conflict. Unable to find work in the depressed times after World War I, Eneas joins the British-led police force, the Royal Irish Constabulary - a decision that alters the course of his life. Branded a traitor by Irish nationalists and pursued by IRA hitmen, Eneas is forced to flee his homeland, his family, and Viv, the woman he loves. His wandering terminates on the Isle of Dogs, a haven for sailors, where a lifetime of loss is redeemed by a final act of generosity. THE WHEREABOUTS OF ENEAS MCNULTY is the story of a lost man and a compelling saga that illuminates Ireland's complex history. Bookseller Inventory # 25874

So McNulty begins his wanderings from Ireland to England, France and Africa, through peacetime and wartime, loneliness and friendship, all the time pursued by those he thinks of as the men in dark coats.
Product Description: The story of a man in the wrong place at the wrong time - Ireland in the 1920s - whose fate becomes bound up with that of his country, and who, through no fault of his own, is forced to flee his home.
