The Weir' is an enthralling and engaging exercise in storytelling as four men meet in their local bar in the fictional town of Carrick. Each person's life and their relationship with their locality and friends starts to unravel as they take it in turn to try and impress a visiting girl from Dublin, Valarie with their tall tales of ghosts, fairies and mysterious happenings. Just as they think they have outdone one another, Valerie herself makes a dramatic and spine-tingling contribution to the proceedings.
