The Lost Village is an astonishingly compelling portrait of life in a small Irish village in 1925, a unique tapestry of village life woven out of Fair Days, court sessions, football finals and carnival dances, which along with such darker shadows of the period such as Civil War bitterness and unemployment, provide the backdrop for real-life triumphs, tragedies and minor scandals.

Written by the acclaimed novelist and short story writer, John MacKenna (The Fallen, Clare), it draws on old newspaper reports along with first-hand interviews in his native Castledermot, in South Kildare to create a refreshingly accurate and unsentimental re-creation of life, as it was lived day-by-day and season-by-season in an Irish village some seventy years ago.
