message 1: by Lucy (new)

Lucy C McDonaugh's plays are missing! :)


message 2: by Hilary (new)

Hilary For The Love Of God by MG Sweeney should win for it's originality and superb writing style, it's humour and the unexpected.


message 3: by Erin (new)

Erin Forgive me but "On Dublin Street" is actually set in Scotland.


message 4: by Ben (new)

Ben I thought Angela's Ashes was a non-fiction memoir???


message 5: by Teri-K (new)

Teri-K Murder at the Vicarage is set in England, in St. Mary Mead.


message 6: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca "Angela's Ashes" is a memoir.


message 7: by Jaseena AL (last edited Apr 02, 2017 06:56AM) (new)

Jaseena AL Angela's Ashes is non-fiction.Remove it !!


message 8: by Vicki (new)

Vicki There are 2 Agatha Christie mysteries on here, both actually set in England.


message 9: by Fiona (new)

Fiona Hurley I removed The Great Hunger: Ireland 1845-1849, which is (sadly) non-fiction.


message 10: by Hilary (new)

Hilary I did not set this up, have no idea so people telling to remove Angela's Ashes may be correct but I do not know how this was set up.


message 11: by Greg (last edited Jul 01, 2017 12:58PM) (new)

Greg To those who vote here, was it hard reading every single book in the world set in Ireland, especially those books that haven't been translated into English or Gaelic, ever, but are set in Ireland? Just curious.


message 12: by Greg (new)

Greg My point is this: any list that claims a "Best" is just silly. "Favorite Books Mostly Set in Ireland Which I've Read"" makes sense.


message 13: by Greg (new)

Greg Mikhail wrote: "James Joyce should be winning hands down."
Well, yes, but Maeve is so much easier to understand, you see. Joyce is too hard.


message 14: by Booklovinglady (last edited Jul 13, 2017 12:31PM) (new)

Booklovinglady I thought The Mysterious Affair at Styles (#90) was set in England? It's been ages since I've read the book, so there is a slight chance I'm wrong, of course. I'm a librarian, so I can remove the book if someone tells me I'm right?


message 15: by Booklovinglady (last edited Jul 13, 2017 12:33PM) (new)

Booklovinglady Teri-K wrote: "Murder at the Vicarage is set in England, in St. Mary Mead."

You're absolutely right, and I have therefore removed the title.

Booklovinglady Vicki wrote: "There are 2 Agatha Christie mysteries on here, both actually set in England."

I've already removed Murder at the Vicarage. Is The Mysterious Affair at Styles one of the books you meant?


message 17: by Donna (last edited Sep 27, 2019 01:53PM) (new)

Donna Davis Removed #67 as nonfiction:
Are You Somebody? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
#97 McCarthy's Bar: A Journey of Discovery
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Removed #108 as a British mystery set in England:
