Description: In a quiet corner of South West Ireland lies a wide stretch of tidal water. But all is not quite as it seems. For an undeclared war exists between the Carricks and the Ballys and, though many of the townsfolk do not know it yet, battle lines have already been drawn. On one side stands the leader of the Ballys, Fergus, and his crew of loyal followers. Set against them is the head of the Carricks, Geronimo, and his gang. In the utterly serious world of childhood, a rivalry flourishes that will send ripples through two communities before it is over.
