Description: Jackie O'Shea and Michael O'Sullivan are two life-long friends who have a talent for getting into mischief. Big believers in luck and dreams, the two have long obsessed over winning the national lottery. In their sleepy, cozy Irish village, even a wee jackpot would go a long, long way. So it is with great excitement that they read in the city newspaper that someone in Tulaigh Morh possesses a winning ticket. They figure it should be easy to sniff out the winner -- in such a small town no one can keep a secret -- and it should be a breeze to convince the winner to share his or her earnings with such good friends as Jackie and Michael.
