Irish

by Sandra Murphy



It’s October, 1934. Things are starting to look a bit better, at least compared to what it’s been lately. There’s still a long way to go. The small town of Darling, has to find encouragement where it can.

Siobhan O’Sullivan has helped a bit with past murders in the village of Kilbane, in County Cork and that gave her the idea of becoming a Garda (police officer) herself. Now she’s graduated after two years of study. Her friend, and almost more, Macdara Flannery has moved to Dublin although he still has jurisdiction over Kilbane when needed.

So many complain that there isn’t anything good on television, but I have found the “pot of gold” with the best programming through Acorn-TV’s online streaming: news & reviews, mysteries, dramas, comedies, documentaries, foreign language, feature films, and some programs only available on or original to Acorn-TV.

Paul and Alice have decided to be married in Kilbane, a small Irish town. Any wedding is cause for excitement, but when the bride is Alice, a famous fashion model, that ups the excitement factor to a frenzy.
Unfortunately, the bridal party isn’t getting along. Brenna is the maid of honor and honestly, why did Alice pick her? She’s snarky, a trouble maker, and more.

St. Patrick’s Day approaches on March 17 and those of us of Irish descent can justifiably dance a little, drink Guinness, Jameson, or Bushmills, and dance some more. Happily too, this year I discovered the Sister Fidelma novels of Peter Tremayne (a.k.a. Peter Bradford Ellis) so will enjoy reading all the series and probably Tremayne’s Irish history works as well.

The play is set on a remote island off the coast of Ireland in 1934. The inhabitants are excited to learn that a Hollywood film crew will be arriving in the neighboring Inishmore to make the film Man of Aran, and several of them want to be in the movie. But the person who wants this most is a crippled young man named Billy (Billy Anderson), who hopes it will bring some excitement to his tedious and sad life–a life where he is constantly teased because of his condition.

As March begins you should be stocking the pantry to prepare tasty Irish dishes on and around St. Patrick’s Day, the 17th. Taking it a step farther, may I suggest a trio of Irish authors for your reading delectation as well? Read any or all of these authors in addition to cooking up and enjoying your colcannon, skirts and kidneys, crubeens, coddles, or just tucking into a simple Ulster fry with or without black pudding.
