It was announced the next morning that Crowley-Baird Inc. had extended a ‘significant’ loan to the government for ‘the administration of logistical support and other measures as necessary and required.’
Later that day the Taoiseach addressed the nation live on television.
‘Extraordinary times,’ he intoned, ‘will always require extraordinary measures not to mention extraordinary generosity.’
The news roused Mac from his stupor.
“Have we learned nothing from our past?’ he railed at the screen.
Inteachán was pleased to see the old Mac returning.
You are nine years old and the only person you know in the world has now decided that they are totally and utterly worthless. Worse than that, they have decided to destroy their entire life’s work page by page.
Inteachán was overwhelmed by the ferocity of Mac’s despair. He wouldn’t eat and she could hear him pacing his room in lonely anguish.
Inteachán eventually fell asleep to the sound of Mac sobbing.
So those cosmic cogs and folds and gears and sinister synapses beyond the sense of those of us still left alive continue to grind and grate and turn and as they do so the Second of TheFive finds the moment opportune and duly crosses over fresh with purpose to surprise the world by taking the form of the bridge over the Grand Canal called Clanbrassil.
As a new snow now falls on the world I want to pause and thank you all for following the daily adventures of Bara Cailín – I really appreciate it. I hope you have enjoyed reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them. Chapter Three will start tomorrow so you don’t have to wait for long.
I know that everybody always wants everything from you whenever you engage with anything online but if you are so minded please could you also tell your friends and share the links? That would be wonderful.
I am currently working on the next phase of the project and hope to have more news soon for you all.
In the meantime, if you haven’t already seen it please watch and share the Bara Cailín trailer on Twitter.
