This is what the critics had to say said about the play and the novel;
"I could not recommend THE BOYS highly enough. I would, without hesitation, award Harnett with a gold medal for his dramatic work." - Zara Lederman - Le Cool, Dublin.
"THE BOYS is a recognisable, sometimes all-too-real, tale of growing up, with all the antics, heartaches and changes, that will have a laugh and a tear competing in your throat." - Sitting on The Fourth Wall.
"With echoes of Frank O'Connor, it's very sharp, very humorous and lyrical. Definitely worth checking out." - RTE - Arena, the arts programme.
"A charming and sensitive story. A particularly well written and finely observed account of a Dublin working-class boyhood." Irish Times.
"A very filmic portrayal of life where the scenes involving the relationship between a father and son are particularly moving." President Michael D. Higgins
