The play chronicles the history of a family from the arranged marriage between John, a stolid, decent Protestant, and Kate, a beautiful impetuous Catholic free spirit.
It spans the 1922 North/South partition to the bombings and atrocities of The Troubles, beginning in the 1920s and coming up to the present day and beyond.
- A Love Song for Ulster consists of a three-play cycle: The Marriage, The Son, and The Daughter.
