    Midden Development’s plans to build a shopping complex on the Blaney land never materialized. The legal machinations dragged on for several years, but finally the company threw their collective hands in the air, and were never heard from in the area again. At the time of writing, someone has begun grazing cattle on those wild fields again. I’d give a penny to a pound those cattle belong to Gerry.

    Robert Chaplin has not, as of yet, published his book on the Blaneys. Robert tells me that Gerry is continuing to keep things interesting around Garshaigh, wheeling and dealing and generally getting up to all kinds of mischief. Gerry is also a regular visitor to Dora and the children, and seems to have developed a fondness for them all. In some ways, I suppose, that is a happy ending.
