Irish author Kevin Barry has been longlisted for the Booker Prize for his book "Night Boat to Tangier".

The Limerick-born writer who now lives in Sligo has won numerous awards for his work including the Dublin International Literary Award, the Rooney Prize and the Goldsmith’s Prize.

He's the only Irish author among 13 who are on this year’s Booker Prize longlist, which is open to writers of any nationality, writing in English and published in the UK or Ireland.

The shortlist will be announced in September and the winner in October, and the prize is worth £50,000.
