Writer Statement

BLOOD OF THE HAUNTED WOLFE is a distinctly Irish, epic odyssey set a not-too-distant Ireland in which the ramifications of Brexit have begun to play out in Northern Ireland, with disastrous consequences.

The story is firstly inspired by current political discussion surrounding the possible reintroduction of fox hunting in the UK, a practice which still remains legal and commonplace in some Northern Irish rural circles. This story aims to take this idea to its final barbaric and logical conclusion in a world where the scope of this blood-sport has been extended to targeting people, as a way of dealing with over-population and certain 'undesirables' in Northern Irish society.

Set in a world not so unimaginable, the story will seek to explore possible ramifications of ‘Brexit’ for people living in a time and place neglected for decades by a complacent, arrogant and unsympathetic Westminster elite.
