    Welcome to Ballygweeha, the windiest town in Ireland! The people haven't heard each other properly in years over the roar of the gales, no-one's ever been able to get a fire lit, and everywhere you look, shit's just blown over. The locals have spent their whole lives walking against the wind, resulting in the famed, half bent-over, sidewards shuffle known as the 'Gweeha sidle.' Whenever you lose something, you learn not to look around but look up and those have been here long enough know that by the time you look up, it's already gone. When prodigal son Luc Torney returns after ten years to save the town from ruin with a windfarm scheme, he is hailed as a hero. But town layabout Jacinta Nangle is brewing up a storm. A cast of gurriers, property developers and mammies collide in this modern Irish satire on corruption and national character.
