I should know. But our luck with fish, it seemed, was on a par with our attempts to keep geraniums alive during the winter months. Evidence of this, if it were needed, emerged one morning towards the end of summer — this is when things started to go awry. It was probably a sign when the dog randomly a few days earlier had stood up on an armchair and stole an entire tub of fish food, took it to the garden and gobbled it up. Dogs can tell of future woes and he obviously felt the fish food would be surplus to requirements soon.
There was enough food spilled on the floor underneath to keep the fish fed for a few days but it was around the same time Goldie 2 started to tilt to one side. Wrong on both fronts. A cursory flick of the tank prompted Goldie 2 back to life. And so it continued for a few days — last rites and flicking —but gradually the flicking had an ever decreasing effect. But tears ensued and I did a terrible thing. The tears stopped. A moment of madness maybe or perhaps an attempt to ensure that my youngest still had intact the notion that Daddy is able to make just about every situation better.
That night, I presided over a short ceremony in the downstairs toilet when everybody was in bed.

I was gone to work by the time anybody else got up the next day. On my lunch I walked up to Whackers on Parnell Street and bought the largest goldfish they had. I also left with the challenge of having to explain how Goldie 2 had been made better, but also had shrunk and become much oranger. Myself and the new fish walked back to T he Irish Times office and later caught the train to Drogheda before driving home.
At home I managed to acclimatise him to the water and introduce him to Goldie 1. But still, my big lie would need to be explained. Days went by and no questions, so I decided to intervene. Also, little boys and goldfish are far more resilient than we had realised.
A series of electoral pacts has at least raised the prospect of significant change on both sides of the sectarian divide. The attitude of Government towards the broadcaster is depressingly narrow, self-serving and bordering on vindictive. Patrick Logue.
