    A short story

  • From Mutton Island

    Lyle had no more been to the Famine graves in Connemara than he'd been to Padraic's bar by the docks. He'd spent no grief on leaving his own sons an ocean away, and he'd not even done his Easter duty after the boys were grown

  • The Dummy

    A five-year-old child had been lost; the menof the town had gotten together a search; they'dfound the boy and he was fine. Why not celebrate?
