After an uneventful Friday at the Dublin office, Cathal faces into the long weekend and takes the bus home.

All evening, with only the television and a bottle of champagne for company, thoughts of this woman and others intrude – and the true significance of this particular date is revealed.

From one of the finest writers working today, Keegan’s new story asks if a lack of generosity might ruin what could be between men and women.
