Belfast, Ireland

March 1, 1973

5:00 PM.

Eddie Kane arrived at the Pub. He saw the gamblers were playing darts. The sound of folk music was played, as he  saw Sheila MacDonald, was wiping the bench with a blue cloth with her left hand. "Good afternoon, Eddie. Long time no see", she said. Eddie, who was wearing a grey coat, smiled. "I was on vacation in Crete, Greece. I worked nights as a guard for Christos Oliver, the Greek millionaire. It paid the bills. Then I flew to London, then to Ireland. And came home", he said. Sheila nodded. "Times are tough these days. I hear that they're spies working in secret in Ireland". Eddie nodded. "England is like a fortress because of Sein Fein. People are leaving the country in droves, and heading to Australia", Eddie sat down on a spare seat. She blinked her eyes. "My father is a Sein Fein. member. He was injured by a bomb in Dublin last year. He is retired, and is on a disability pension". Eddie nodded. "I'll have some Irish stew, garlic bread, and some coffee please". Sheila wrote the order down, as several more locals arrived for dinner.
