Irish government official and secret British agent, Francis Byrne, must act fast to encourage resistance and prevent Ireland from becoming a launch pad for a Nazi invasion of Britain. But at what cost to the Irish people, and to his own loved ones?

Inspired by a recently discovered documents confirming Hitler's wartime plans to invade Ireland, and using both fictional and real characters, Desecration is a powerful counter-factual drama. It imagines how the first few days of such an invasion would have unfolded - and shows the stark moral dilemmas faced by a nation's leaders when the time comes to choose between resistance and collaboration.
