Doon Island Dummies is a concise trilogy: three short stories playing in different times on fictional Doon Island, off the coast of the Beara Peninsula. A historical account (Loops) of a submarine detection base in WW2, seen through the eyes of a defecting Brit, is followed by (Hidden), the discovery of an important manuscript of a famous French writer who once lived on the island, on the run from threats at home. The final story (Insulated) tells the experiences of some of Doon’s population, when – as an experiment – the developing internet gets blocked from the island. All three stories are linked, by their challenges with perception and the characters’ loyalty for their causes, but more so by the common thread of the larger history of Ireland.
