Danny, Mario and Me is a story of friendship between three teenage boys in an Irish border town in the 80s. Taidg, Danny and Mario are best friends, thick as thieves, untouchable, until one Friday night, when Danny hangs himself in a field at the back of his family home. Haunted by the manner of his friend's death, Taidg wants answers.

In his endeavour to unfold the events that led to the tragic night, Taidg reaches out to Danny's mother, Margaret, to help him understand. But is this an impossible task? Can any one human being ever fully understand why another chooses to take his own life? Either way, it's a journey that Taidg feels compelled to travel, a journey that may bear unexpected fruit.

The story deals with a lot of difficult issues: the Troubles, suicide, depression, anorexia, family relationships and teenage friendships, as well as accurately observing the vagaries of small-town Irish life.
