When quiet, music-loving priest Christopher Hegarty is ordained a bishop, he quickly gets into trouble not just with his church but also with some of the most powerful political and business people in Ireland. As public controversy grows and the stakes get higher and higher, Christopher is challenged in ways he has never been before.

Set during Ireland’s economic boom, Bishop’s Move is a compelling and entertaining read that deals lightly with some of the major themes of the contemporary Irish world.

‘I have a beautiful house that I love. I’m rich. I’ve got friends whom I love. I’ve got so much. But it’s like trying to close your hands on water, on smoke. It slips through your fingers.’ ‘What does?’ She looked at him for a moment, as if assessing the extent of his stupidity. ‘Everything,’ she said. ‘Everything.’one of the most sensitive issues of Irish-German relations in the Second World War.

'Incisively illuminating the high-octane glistening artifice of the Celtic Tiger and also the secretive cloisters of ecclesiastical intrigue, Bishop's Move subtly brings us inot the mind of an unobstrusive cleric, unexpectedly propelled into the public eye, whi finds it impossible to shy away from the uncomfortable truths he uncovers, no matter what the consequences to his peaceful existence, his faith, his career and possibly even his life...'  Dermot Bolger
