Description - On Raftery's Hill by Marina Carr

In Marina Carr's epic tragedy of rural life, three generations of the Rafterys live together in the midlands of Ireland. It's a closely knit farming community where hatred and rumours of incest, stillborn children, and abused families seem more common than love and affection.
