Description

Young Hardress Cregan is a collegian and a rogue, with a wicked, roving eye.

Although he is courting his wealthy cousin Anne, he has also embarked on a passionate love affair with the lowly - but very beautiful - Eily O'Connor.

Hardress knows that his family would never approve of this match and he should abandon his new fancy.

But his lust overwhelms his conscience and he embarks on a fatal deception - secretly marrying Eily while succumbing to his mother's machinations and becoming engaged to Anne.

How will Hardress extricate himself from this dilemma?

Together with his hunchback half-brother, Danny Mann, he hatches a deadly conspiracy... Originally published in 1829, and inspired by a celebrated criminal case, The Collegians was a sensation in its day.

It made Killarney a tourist attraction, and its thrilling plot - involving love, rivalry, secrecy, and betrayal - inspired many imitations.
