A heartwarming debut that continues the story of the hit RTE TV series Pure Mule, which captured the whole world in one small Irish town.

Scobie Donoghue was once the king of Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, famous for the craic and the drink. His twenties were spent working on building sites during the Celtic Tiger, making good money and spending it on wild weekends. A lovable rogue, the lads wanted to be him and the girls wanted to be with him.

But now, returning from Australia after the break-down of his relationship, Scobie is back in the single bed of his childhood home. About to turn forty, burnt out and depressed, he quickly discovers that life in the small midlands town he thought he had left behind has moved on - but has Scobie?

'Just like Normal People, Pure Mule captured the zeitgeist at a pivotal time in modern Ireland.' Roscommon Herald
