With sufficient reliable cheer to hot the guts during the Christmas season and the lengthy nights of wintry weather, Keane’s playful quantity revisits the Christmases eccentrically celebrated by means of the likes of Dotie Tupper and Johnny Naile, the doughty Canon Doyle and deaf Canon Cornelius Coodle, the amiable spendthrift Aenias Mackson and Hiccups O’Reilly, who disappears one Christmas for seven years.

Keane bears pleasant witness to the strengths and failings, the pains and triumphs, of the straightforward yet now not so traditional folks of rural Ireland.
