The Flying Dutchman of Inishkill
By Tom Swift
Sean is nervous but excited about bringing his fiancee Senta home to meet his mother, on the remote Irish-speaking island of Inishkill. Senta instantly falls in love with the island and is captivated by the local legend of the pirate known as The Flying Dutchman.
But soon things get weird. Sean reverts to type as a conservative mammy’s boy, his mother can’t or won’t speak any English, and the teasing call of a pirate’s song can be heard in the distance.
