Two men meet for a pint in a Dublin pub. They chew the fat, set the world to rights, take the piss. They talk about their wives, their kids, their kids' pets, their football teams and - this being Ireland in 2011-12 -about the euro, the crash, the presidential election, the Queen's visit.
A Greyhound of a Girl is a wittily told tale that switches back and forth in time. It illuminates the enduring bonds between mothers and daughters, and the bittersweet acceptance when the time comes to say goodbye.
