Shortlisted for Irish Times ‘Legends of the Fall’ competition

The Irish Times have been running a series of stories based around the general subject of the events of the last five years, recession, property crash, bank guarantee etc, under the title Legends of the Fall. It has featured such luminaries of the Irish literature scene as Ann Enright, Colm Tobin etc.

They had an open competition to submit a story to feature as the last in the series in this weekend’s paper. I am delighted to find that my story Vicious Circular hasĀ been shortlisted in a group of ten for the competition, and appear on the Irish Times website today here
