On duty, he will consume alcohol and drugs and even have dalliances with prostitutes. But when it comes to his mother, Eileen, he is an adorable son. Though she is at a retirement home, whenever she is with her son she is at her best for he makes her laugh and cheers her up like no one else.

Boyle’s life, however, is inconvenienced when he gets a partner in the name of McBride. Boyle doesn’t like his partner especially because he comes from the big city while he is just a cop in a rural area.

Meanwhile, there’s a drug deal in the offing involving huge amounts of money. Following a killing suspected to be connected to the drug deal, the FBI send an agent to Ireland. The FBI agent is an African-American named Everett and he is to work alongside Boyle. With his only knowledge of black people having been garnered from stereotypes portrayed on TV, Boyle would come across as racist were it not for the fact that crassness and lack of tact are obviously the culprits here.

After getting over their initial differences, the two cops, Boyle and Everett eventually learn to work together. Boyle gets so involved that someone is even sent to kill him to stop him from the work he is doing and allow the drugs to come in. But Boyle has a trick up his sleeve and he manages to save his life. But how many more times can he do it as the drug dealers close in? Find out in The Guard.
