Janey Mary

Janey Mary tells the story of a 5-year-old girl in post-WWII Dublin who is sent out by her mother onto the cold, streets to beg for food. In her desperate search for food she misses school and remembers that she will also miss her old friend Fr. Benedict, the Augustinian priest. Her search leads her to where a large crowd of people are queuing outside the Augustinian Church waiting for bread rations to be handed out. It is here, in the mad scramble for food, that little Janey Mary is trampled on and left for dead; it is her old friend Fr. Benedict who risks his own life to save hers.
