The Ballad of Seán and Orla and Other Stories: a Weekend in Nice, France

Ah! La belle France! I flew to Nice, on the Côte d’Azur, for a family reunion recently. Three of my five brothers, and both of my sisters, made it to Nice for the weekend. I hadn’t seen my twin brothers, Hugh and Killian, for over twelve years; my sister Fiona and her new husband Bruce for a year, and not since their marriage last February; my brother Cormac for about three years; my sister Dairine and her beloved, also called Cormac, for about two months and my dear parents Paddy and Cinnie for about three weeks. It was a big occasion, and I felt a mixture of excitement and trepidation before the trip. As a family we were never great at holding back, and a weekend together would provide a perfect opportunity to have a row from which there would not be sufficient time to recover. After my arrival in Nice Airport one Saturday afternoon, I was happy but perhaps a little anxious, made the more acute in the light of the terrible sadness that Nice had experienced in July.
