The Tourist Trap

They couldn’t believe their luck. Who could imagine a half board holiday at a farmhouse in the west of Ireland for such a low price? Better still, the advertisement said the deal included free transfers from the station, and “dedicated transport for sightseeing and excursions” for the length of the vacation. This more than compensated for the flights and train.

With a sense of excitement and expectation, they were met by Mr. Leary at the station. He took their bags, and led them from the platform. As they exited the station they were shocked as they met the sixteen year year-old mare, Lady, harnessed to the tourists’ trap.
