Mairia Cahill is my cousin. First cousin, once removed, for those who understand or care about such technicalities.

For most of my life, it didn't really matter anyway. We belong to a large, extended bunch, which is spread across Belfast. Mairia's side in the west of the city. My smaller branch in the north. I didn't know them and they didn't know me, except to hear what they were up to now and again; but I always got the impression that the Cahills were a bit of a mystery. You'd have needed a family tree to keep track of them.
