The History Of The Peace (accordin’ to my Ma)
by Martin Lynch and Grimes & McKee
From the team that brought you The History Of The Troubles (accordin’ to my Da) comes the comedy sequel, The History Of The Peace (accordin’ to my Ma !). A peaceful tale of street protests, riots, guns, bombings and more riots.
Karen Reid is a Belfast community worker struggling to keep house and family together in the face of Northern Ireland’s unique form of peace. Through the 1994 ceasefires, the Good Friday Agreement, the Chuckle Brothers and the ‘fleg’ protests, she fervently believes in a new Northern Ireland.
Thankfully, Karen has the ‘total support’ of her loyal band of friends such as: Fireball - now working in Roselawn Crematorium - her dingbat best friend, Stacy, flute band leader, Roberto, Pineapple the paramilitary, Claire, the secret lesbian, Aaron, the serial ‘fleg’ protester and many more.
Featuring the return of Fireball !

Contains some strong language.
