There's a hole in Eddie's heart, the void - filled as a child by his mother's God - that is perhaps at the heart of the contemporary experience, the inability to find anything to fully believe in of belong to. That spiritual vacuum is finally filled for him with heroin, the drug which a whole generation of lost Dubliners turned to.
