    Abstract

    In his absurdist masterpiece An Béal Bocht, the author Flann O’Brien included an Irish map of the world drawn by the artist Seán O’Sullivan. Only the significant spaces were marked, including Sligo Jail, travel routes to Scotland and deposits of illegal alcohol. The United States (‘Overseas’) contained little of note except for New York, Boston, Springfield Massachusetts, some long-horned cattle and a few money order offices.1 England (‘the Other Side’) had even less of significance: it had fewer money order offices, but did reveal one outstanding feature – the Irishman George Bernard Shaw.
