Five short stories and a very short play, set on the margins of contemporary Irish society. Some darkly humorous, some just dark. Strong language throughout.
Feed the Birds - title from the movie, Mary Poppins, but there isn't much sweetness in this story about an old woman plagued by over-sexed teenagers and delinquent children.
As Ireland plunged into recession, the last government briefly succeeded in diverting attention away from the real issues with a proposal to outlaw stag hunting. Riders imagines how rural Ireland responded to this bizarre political opportunism.
Tigers - a week in the life of a young Dublin family. Hangovers, DVDs, secondhand golf clubs, coffee tables, flat-screen TVs, cancer, broken lifts, barbecues and Dublin Zoo.
He's too old to for a coming of age story and too young for a mid-life crisis, but there are elements of both in Paidraig's First Car, as he attempts to compensate for his social and physical awkwardness by finding a car which will make him more attractive to women.
Grow Fins - inspired by the eponymous Captain Beefheart song and incorporating the legendary dobhar-chú.
The Secret Billionaire - likely to cause offence. But then the concept of a TV programme that gets very rich people to give away insignificant amounts of money to very poor people is pretty offensive, too.
