My brother saw Matt Damon in Dalkey the other day. It was a brief and uneventful celebrity sighting - they drove past one another on the road - but it was more than enough to pique my interest when he told me about it afterwards.

"What kind of car was it?" I asked. "Was he driving fast or slow? Was he in good form, do you think?"

Celebrity sightings don't particularly interest me at the best of times, but my brother spotting the Good Will Hunting star was tantamount to him telling me he'd seen a UFO or a moving statue. He had witnessed an apparition in a Ford Fiesta and my world view was irrevocably shaken.
