« Go back
Vinnie lives with his wife (Nora) and daughter on the bog where he also works, repairing machines for Bord na Mona. When his brother-in-law, Arthur, is made redundant by the closure of a Japanese computer company, Vinnie and Arthur look for something new to give meaning to their life. They find it whilst watching Roustabout, an Elvis Presley movie about wall of death motorcycles riders. Vinnie determines to establish his own wall on the bog. They fund the project with a mixture of Arthur's redundancy money and with extra revenue earned by smuggling for local businessman/ gangster, Boss Murtagh.

The wall built, they invite the community and a television crew to the grand opening. However as the bike speeds around the plywood walls, vibrations shake the viewing platform, convincing the audience that the wall is unsound. They flee in a panic. Despite this, Vinnie's exploits receive positive television coverage and he remains hopeful that sponsorship will result. When it doesn't, he despairs and burns down the wall. Months later, all appears to have returned to normal but it emerges that Vinnie and Arthur have new project: to build a helicopter from spare parts.
