Go to Ibiza for a week and you will see it all: shameless days on the beach; lustful long slender legs; people unconscious on the street; impulsive temptation; finding a niche in society; the ‘walk of shame’; cigarettes and alcohol; the headlong hurtling to oblivion; and God only knows what else… Several stories that seek to reveal a side to the island in a world outside the all-inclusive holiday resorts. The first book of fiction by Labhrás Ó Finneadha.

Tom Jeffers, 'Ní mar a shíltear Íbíotsa', in Comhar, Eanáir 2016.

'fite fuaite leis na scéalta faoi na ‘trághnáthóirí,’ tarraingíonn an t-údar ár n-aird ar thíreolaíocht an Oileáin Bhailéaraigh, ar a chultúr dúchais agus ar mheon a mhuintire. Pléitear le cultúr na hÉireann in áit choimhthíoch agus cuirtear i gcomparáid le cultúir an oileáin agus cultúr na hEorpa i gcoitinne é, iniúchadh á dhéanamh, b’fhéidir, ar fhís na hEorpa agus mar a réitíonn saoránaigh an Aontais lena chéile. Is iad na hógánaigh, as Éirinn agus as an oileán féin, atá chun cinn sna gearrscéalta seo.'
