‘The stories are rich in dialogue – indeed on many pages there is only dialogue – while the quick exchange of words beats out the rhythm of history on the move’ CLAIRE CONNOLLY from her preface to The Experiences of an Irish R. M.

The stories in The Experiences of an Irish R. M. are almost entirely concerned with the doings of Skebawn in south-western Ireland and its surroundings. Originally published monthly in the Badminton Magazine from 1898 (alongside stories about golf, rugby, fishing and shooting) and subsequently in books from 1899. Each successive short tale offers a dazzling succession of incidents, quickfire dialogue and sudden turnabouts of fortune.
