This volume is being published to mark the 50th anniversary of the Mercier Press. The primary aim of the selection is to offer the reader an entertaining book of stories. Along with classics of Irish literature, the book includes pieces that belong to the popular tradition of storytelling. The book brings together crucial figures such as Francis MacManus, Padraic Pearse and Daniel Corkery. The range is wide, from Pearse's mystic allegories to MacManus's realistic historical drama. A lighter note is provided by Sigerson Clifford, while the more recent generations are represented by John B. Keane and Brian Cleeve. Included also are the stories from the oral tradition. On the one hand there are pieces from storytellers whose audience would have been limited to the people of their locality, and whose art was recorded by others. Eric Cross's "The Tailor and Ansty" is a celebrated, and in its time controversial, example of this type. On the other hand, there are pieces that mirror the polished and professional art of storytelling adapted for a wider public; Eamon Kelly is the obvious choice in this area.

The Irish short story has a distinctive place in the modern Irish literary tradition. Many of Ireland's best writers, both in English and Irish, have been practitioners of the genre. It is possible that the Irish short story evolved naturally from the ancient tradition of oral storytelling in Ireland. The written word has been cultivated in Ireland since the introduction of the Roman alphabet by the Christian missionaries in the fifth century

Anthony Trollope’s Palliser novels teach us very little about the real stuff of politics. Programmes and policies are what make the political world go round and in five long volumes – six if The Eustace Diamonds counts as part of the series – Plantagenet Palliser rises from backbencher to prime minister without showing much interest in either. Above all, politics pervades this story as much as in any of the Palliser novels. Its clergymen are tossed around in the clash of ideas. Low church battles high church. It tells the story of a young man, the only son of a successful Irish doctor, who ends up in London studying law. A lacklustre student, the young Phineas is charming and handsome.
