    Summary

    At the pub, the walls were painted a pine shade of green, the white of the ceiling exhausted by an old leak, frames dangling off nails, slightly tilted. John F. Kennedy having a pint, Ollie Campbell in dirty shorts and an Irish jersey, the tricolour flag hanging from behind the bar and a fading print of Poblacht Na hEireann by the door. 

    On game days, drunk and rowdy middle-aged men would congregate to watch Mayo lose every GAA final since 1951. They called it the ‘Mayo curse’ and the legend had it that after the team’s last triumph, the bus escorting the heap of victorious players had passed a funeral cortege on the road, and failed to pay proper respects. A catholic priest had placed a curse as punishment, and the county never won a final again.

    So, come to think of it, maybe that’s why Dad never minded Mam’s post-wedding revelations much. In Ireland, even the Muggles believed in magic.

    Summary

    The longest con Amy ever orchestrated was one she had honestly never foreseen, when at the age of 20, she moved all the way to Europe for three years of art school.

    Amy had envisioned a number of ways in with her European experience might play out, but not once had she accounted for the unexpected addition that threw all her expectations out the window - one Theodore ‘Laurie’ Laurence.
