Frank Delaney lists his “Top 10 Irish Novels”.I was pleased to see he includes “Thy Tears might Cease “ by Michael Farrell, although less convinced by “Star Of the Sea” by Joseph O’Connor.

Joyce, Edna O’Brien, McGahern, Flanagan, Bowen, William Trevor and JG Farrell are all represented.

I would replace the O’Connor book by Redemption by Francis Stuart or The Informer by O’Flaherty and Finnegans wake by Colm Tóibín’s Blackwater Lightship.

How do other sluggers rate his choices ?
