Describe the setting of "The Sniper." Why do you think this setting is so limited?
"The Sniper" is set in the city of Dublin during the Irish Civil War. This places the story somewhere in 1922 or 1923. Beyond this general setting, the bulk of the story takes place on a building rooftop near O’Connell Bridge where the protagonist has inserted himself. We are told that night has just fallen. That is basically all the information that readers are given for this story's setting. As the question states, the setting details are fairly limited.
