Ireland has excelled – both in literature in general, winning four Nobel Prizes, which for a country of four million is some kind of record – and in the short story. This week, the magic of the Irish short story, then and now – with Roddy Doyle, Claire Keegan and Kevin Barry.

Kevin Barry’s book of short stories, There Are Little Kingdoms is published by Stinging Fly Press, and he has a novel coming out next year. Roddy Doyle recently published a collection of short stories called The Deportees. Claire Keegan has two books of stories, Antarctica and Walk the Blue Fields, both published in paperback by Faber and Faber.
