Satire on post-treaty Ireland. The old soldier from the War of Independence is dying on his feet with his rifle on his chest. When he's finally laid out for a wake in the corner of a dosshouse, a debate is sparked off between four characters representing the four Irelands('Nationalist and Past'/'Present and Disillusioned'/'Cringing and Parasitical'/'Well-meaning but Defeated')
