This award-winning comedy traces the misadventures of two of Cork’s not-so finest criminals – a funny, honest and touching portrait of the human face of the underworld.

Written by Cork Evening Echo court reporter Liam Heylin, Love Peace and Robbery is inspired by real-life interviews conducted with inmates of Cork Prison, struggling to break the cycle of petty crime and imprisonment.

 

Reviews:

“Heylin delivers a finely observed, funny and utterly convincing portrait of crime and its environs.”
The Irish Times

“…it is so well written that one can only sit riveted and quietly conclude that there may, after all, be honour among thieves.”
The Irish Examiner

“…confident, fluid and finely balanced, a strong piece of work.”
