Humor in Irish literature

I recently started reading The Third Policeman by Flann O'Brien, and I noticed certain similarities to other Irish writers such as James Joyce and Samuel Beckett--namely, black comedy,absurdism,wordplay, a circular storyline...and I was wondering whether this could be considered a product of the time period in which these authors were writing, or if it's a product of their nationality. What do you think? Are there certain traits that Irish comedies have in common?
