Murder Mystery: An Irish Stew

An’ it’s a wake for yon grandfather, then, is it? Sure and begorrah, all of his surviving feisty relatives have gathered together to toast the recently deceased ol’ man — and to find out whether the rumours of his having found the leprechauns are true. Or were his mumblings about little green men just from too much imbibing of green beer? Will his cache of genuine rainbow jewels turn out to be just so many sham rocks? Is this a pot o’gold, or An Irish Stew? Details
