Classic Irish Short Stories, Vol. 1

Classic Irish Short Stories, Vol. 1 - George Augustus Moore Solid collection of (somewhat dated) Irish shorts with characteristic Irish black humor, but maybe a "wee" too much of the use of stereotypical Irish accents rendered into print. My favorite was the last, a running feud between two village elders as to the proper location of a deceased neighbor's family burial plot, and the only semi-bereaved widow (a fourth wife of the deceased) finding much to admire in the gravedigger twins who put her late husband in the ground.
