A classic coming-of-age gangster tale, combined with a troubled urban romance. An explosive cross between Trainspotting and Love/Hate.

And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.

Dublin Seven is the gritty, violent, sometimes raunchy story of nineteen-year-old Shane, coming up as a small-time coke dealer in Dublin. Having just left school and keen to assert his independence, Shane loses himself in the tail end of Celtic Tiger nightlife. Through a chance meeting with a local gangster, he sets himself up in business.

'C’mere. D’ye know where I’d get a bit of tha stuff?' Shane asked Griffo. 'It’s deadly so it is.' —'Yeah no bother kid, it’s always there if ye want it, anytime.'

Soon, Shane’s life is drugs, dance music, gangsters – and a beautiful girlfriend. But as the Celtic Tiger limps out of sight, so does Shane’s luck. The threats multiply, his paranoia builds and the violence creeps closer. Dublin Seven is a classic coming-of-age gangster tale, combined with a troubled urban romance. An explosive cross between Trainspotting and Love/Hate.

'High octane, visceral and uncompromising, Dublin Seven introduces a talent to be watched. Compellingly rough lyricism and a blistering breakneck narrative.'    Patrick McCabe, author of The Butcher Boy

'Unnerving, page-turning suspense...an evocative, fast-paced journey through Dublin’s underworld.'   Dr Michael Pierse, author of Writing Ireland's Working-class: Dublin After O'Casey.
