The Emerald Isle was the first country to be hit hard by the GFC, with unemployment soaring, investment disappearing and the highest levels of emigration in decades. How are the Irish coping with this economic catastrophe? Roddy Doyle and Sebastian Barry talk to Tom Keneally.

Roddy Doyle was born in Dublin in 1958. He is the author of nine acclaimed novels and Rory & Ita, a memoir about his parents. He won the Booker Prize in 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha. The Dead Republic was the final volume in the Henry Smart trilogy.

Sebastian Barry was born in Dublin in 1955. His novels include The Whereabouts of Eneas McNulty, Annie Dunne, A Long Long Way and The Secret Scripture. A Long Long Way, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, was the Dublin: One City, One Book choice for 2007. The Secret Scripture won several awards and was also shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Sebastian lives in Wicklow with his wife and three children.

Thomas Keneally has written many novels and has shown an increasing interest in producing histories. His history of Irish convictism, The Great Shame, and later work, The Commonwealth of Thieves, were published in all the English-language markets. His novels include Bring Larks and Heroes, The Chant of Jimmy Blacksmith, Gossip from the Forest, Schindler's Ark and The People's Train. Thomas has the won numerous awards, among them the Miles Franklin Literary Award, the Booker Prize, the Los Angeles Book Prize and the Royal Society of Literature Prize.
