Fiachra Sheridan's The Runners follows the adventures of Bobby and his best friend Jay, two lively 13-year-olds growing up in inner-city Dublin in the 1980s. Sheridan skilfully explores the intensity of adolescent friendships, and the natural hunger for new experience. The fragility of innocence is also revealed, as the two friends inadvertently become embroiled in an adult world that is beyond their control.
