Irish Sporting Short Stories

Despite its world-wide appeal, sport has been largely ignored as a subject for fiction, whether the novel or the short story. This anthology represents sixteen sports including Athletics, Boxing, Fishing, Gaelic Football, Greyhound Racing, Horse Racing, Hurling, Rugby and Swimming, with stories by some of Ireland's best known writers. Brian Friel, Sean O'Faolain, Liam O'Flaherty, John B. Keane, Somerville and Ross and Sam McAughtry are among the contributors to this first-ever anthology of Irish Sporting Short Stories.
