The novel begins with a prologue in the voice of an old man, Charles de Cresseron, that is set in Chapelizod, Ireland, roughly a century after the events of the novel proper. This prologue details how, during an interment at the churchyard of the title, a skull is accidentally unearthed, which bears the marks of two crushing blows to the head and-- even more disconcertingly-- a small hole from a trepanning.

This is the most magical book you will ever read. Set in Ireland in the 1700's it tells the story of the Royal Irish Artillery based in a small village and what life is like there. You will laugh 'til your sides ache, you will cry with sadness. It is the story of a village and it's people.Some you will love, some you will hate. You will feel you are part of this village. It is the best book ever, written by, in my opinion, the best Irish writer ever. He puts all the others in the shade. Read and enjoy. You will read it again and again and enjoy it every time.

Far too long and unnecessarily drawn-out. I was really looking forward to reading this and unfortunately was left decidedly underwhelmed and disappointed..
