Laura Puuths was in Clon for the weekend, visiting her grandfather's house. She had been out in Inishannon the night before and was feeling in great form because she met some nice new people. She stuck on one of her favourite songs on the iPod lodged in the large, sleek, super-modern, iPod dock which she had just bought her grandfather for his 80th birthday.

She turned it up nice and loud


Somehow she started thinking about what she would do in the event of a Nuclear War. She had it in her head that she'd phone the Scottish lad she met last night if the phones were working and they'd head to Cool Mountain together. The thought must have been still in her head after the mad conversations of last night.

Laura heard a car outside and stood up to have a look. It was a large white Ford Focus with yellow and blue fluorescent stickers and a Garda siren light on the top.

"Not that fucker Aeneas McNulty here again to get all the latest snitchy news of the town from my Grandfather" muttered Laura.

"Shut up Laura", said her grandfather from behind her all of a sudden - he must have just come in the back door after 8 o'clock mass. "Aeneas only comes for a cup of tay and a bit of harmless chat of a Sunday morning before he goes on the beat around Clon. Tough job but someone has to do it."

Laura rolled her eyes and went to the kitchen to make the tay and prepare the griddle bread for Aeneas and her grandfather.

Last Time on "Wesht Cork":

He whipped the phone out of his pocket and looked at it in puzzlement. It was metallic pink, and had a charm attached.

Stephen examined the charm, with as much focus as his hangover would allow him. It looked like a tiny silver whale.

He had never seen the phone before, but he read the text message anyway. He then immediately wished he hadn't ....


"Am I going to make it through this day?" thought Stephen as he put down the chainsaw. As if it wasn't bad enough to feel so sick with drink now he'd have to go hunting that young one whose phone he lifted by accident. He really couldn't believe the message though - he had to look at least twice. Could it really be ... ?

Just then his missus burst into the shed.

"What the hell do you think you're doing taking up smoking again, you fecker! You know it's going to kill you - you know! I found a half-smoked packet of fags next to your pillow you EEJIT!"

"It was only a dozen or so Maeve, I don't think I'll be even drinking again after today let alone smoking"

"Bloody right you won't - if you come back here smelling of fags then you'll find your dinner in the bin on top of your DIE HARD PREMIUM COLLECTION and you will find me at MY SISTER'S IN MIDLETON FOR THE WEEK".

Stephen watched his wife storm back up the garden path and looked at the phone again. He really and truly couldn't believe it: That young one's boyfriend had just bought a new PS4 for 200 quid - he had been totally ripped off with what he paid!

Could the day get any worse he thought as he lumbered up the drive with the chainsaw in his right hand. As he exited the garden out the front gate he didn't really take any notice of the pillar with the name of his house on it: "Béal An Baile"

Little did he know he would never see that stone pillar ever again.

last time ...

Meanwhile, somewhere on the R600, the black 7 series BMW belted along towards Clonakilty. The chances of a Garda speed check on a Sunday morning on this road were remote, if none at all.

The occupant was extremely agitated, least of all because of the state of his bank shares portfolio. He knew that if he got to the Internet Cafe in Clon, this could be corrected.

Providing Gertie Maguire didn't catch wind of what he was about to do ....


The man pulled over in a quiet spot on the western side of Inchydony island, his BMW H-H 7 Series whirring to a stop next to the old strand wall. There was no one around, not even two ladies power-walking.

He half cursed himself that he hadn't taken the wife's Audi9 as it was less conspicuous around these plush parts of West Cork. He definitely knew he shouldn't have filled up in Bandon at the new hydrogen station there.

He looked across the road at the little bit of forest over the wall then he looked at the soft mud of the strand. He opened the boot and contemplated the heavy sack inside.
