Duinnín agus an Cat (tuilleadh)

  • ‘Tá an gloine briste i ndoras uimhir a 33,’ arsa Eleanór, ‘díreach mar a bheadh i ndoras Mharia murach gur imir tú cleas ar an nglas.’
    ‘Féach an sneachta os comhair an dorais [g],’ ar sise. ‘B’é go raibh cruinniú poiblí ar an táirseach?’
    ‘Dráma, seachas cruinniú, déarfainn,’ arsa an Duinníneach. ‘An rian is tábhachtaí ná an ceann sin ar clé ar fad.’
    ‘Is geall le rian coise eilifint é.’

    ‘The glass is broken in door number 33,’ Eleanor said , ‘just like it would be in Maria’s door if you hadn’t played a trick on the lock.’
    ‘Look at the snow in front of the door,’ she said. Was there a public meeting on the threshhold?’
    ‘Drama, rather than a meeting, I would say,’ said Dineen. ‘The most important track is that one on the far left. It is like an elephant’s footprint.’

  • ‘Cuimhnigh go raibh bróga tí á gcaitheamh ag Maria. Faoin am seo, bheidís báite fliuch agus éadach na n-uachtar ag sliobarnaíl thar na boinn. Tá na coiscéimeanna eile anuas ar na cinn aici siúd.’
    ‘An méid atá iontu!’ arsa Eleanor go himníoch. ‘Fiú agus méadú le linn leá a chur san áireamh! . . . Feicim fathaigh, abominable snowmen, dosaen garraíodóir ar thóir Mharia.’
    ‘Siúil anseo i lár an chosáin mar a bhfuil an sneachta leáite.’
    ‘Fuil!’ arsa Eleanór agus uafás uirthi.
    ‘Braonta ar fud na háite,’ a d’aontaigh an Duinníneach.
    Chuir sé lámh trín bpoll agus d’oscail sé an doras.

    Remember Maria was wearing house shoes. By this time, they would be drenched wet and the cloth on top drooping over the soles. The other footsteps are on top of hers.
    ‘The size of them!’ said Eleanor anxiously. ‘Even considering the increase during melting! . . . I see giants, abominable snowmen, a dozen gardeners in search of Maria.’
    ‘Walk here in the middle of the path where the snow has melted.’
    ‘Blood!’ said Eleanor in horror.
    ‘Drops all over the place,’ agreed Dineen.
    He put his hand through the hole and opened the door.

  • Shiúil siad isteach thar smionagar gloine. Thug siad faoi ndeara láithreach fuacht an tí, an fuacht sin a éalaíonn isteach in áit nuair nach mbíonn daoine istigh á choinneáil amuigh. Ceithre sheomra ar fad a bhí ann agus ní raibh éinne in aon cheann acu. Bhí an dá sheomra leapa néata, ceann folamh, ceann eile le leaba cóirithe agus éadaí ban sa chófra ann. Chuir an Duinníneach spéis sna grianghrafanna a bhí ar na fallaí.

    They walked in over broken glass. They immediately noticed the coldness of the house, that cold that slips into a place where there are no people to keep it out. There were four rooms in all and nobody was in any of them. The two bedrooms were neat, one empty, another with a made bed and women’s clothes in the chest. Dineen was interested in the photographs on the walls.

  • ‘Bhí macasamhail an phictiúra seo tigh Mharia,’ ar seisean agus é ag breathnú ar ghrianghraf donn tréigthe tógtha i stiúideo – leanaí agus pictiúir den mhuir sa chúlráid.
    ‘Ar luaigh Maria a gaolta leat?’

    ‘This picture was like one in Maria’s house, he said while looking at a faded brown picture taken in a studio — children and pictures of the sea in the background.
    ‘Did Maria mention her relatives to you?’

  • [start p 17]‘Táid i gCorcaigh. Sílim go bhfuil col ceathar anseo sa chathair ach nach réitíonn siad le chéile.’
    ‘Aithníonn an croí gaol mar sin féin. Leagfaidh mé mo chuid de mharóg na Nollag air gur chuimhnigh sí ar a col ceathar nuair a fuair sí í féin i sáinn. Is dócha go bhfuil an col ceathar i gCorcaigh leis na gaolta eile. Maria bhocht.’
    Sa chistin ní raibh aon ní as áit seachas go raibh gloine sa dabhach. Bholaigh an Duinníneach é. Chuaigh sé isteach sa seomra suí agus d’fhéach sé sna cófraí.

    ‘They are in Cork.I think there is a cousin here in the city but they are not reconciled/do not get along.
    The heart recognizes a relative anyway. I will bet my Christmas pudding she remembered her cousin when she found herself in a fix. The cousin is probably in Cork with the other relatives. Poor Maria.
    In the kitchen there was nothing out of place other than a glass in the sink. Dineen sniffed it. He went into the living room and looked in the chests.

    ‘Cá bhfuil Maria?’
    ‘Tabharfaidh an searbhaí ann muid.’
    D’fhill siad ar bhéal na Plásóige mar a raibh an searbhaí agus a chapall araon ag crúbáil na talún le fuacht agus mífhoighne.

    ‘Drink a glass and cry a river,’ he said laughing. ‘I now know where Maria is and what happened to her, but I do not yet know what caused the commotion in the first place.’
    ‘Where is Maria?’
    ‘The driver will bring us there.’
    They returned to the mouth of the Green where the driver and his horse both pawing the ground with cold and impatience

  • ‘Tabhair chuig an Stáisiún Póilíní is cóngaraí don áit seo muid,’ arsa an Duinníneach. ‘Is ag póilíní, Bráithre Críostaí agus freastalaithe a bhíonn cosa móra agus bróga fathaigh,’ ar seisean i leataoibh le hEleanor.

    ‘Take us to the police station nearest this place,’ Dineen said. ‘It is at the police, Christian brethren and attendants who have big feet and giant shoes,’ he said sideways to Eleanor.

  • Póilín óg in éide úrnua, ábhairín róbheag dó, a bhí ar diúité.
    ‘Maith mar a tháinig sibh,’ ar seisean nuair a lorg an Duinníneach Maria Godley. ‘Tá bean anseo istigh againn nach bhfuil sásta a rá linn cé hí féin. Níor chuireamar i gcillín í agus níl sí faoi choinneáil. Tá sí thuas in oifig an tSáirsint, cois tine, ag ól tae leis.’
    ‘Maria Godley faoi ghéibhinn ag an DMP!’ arsa Eleanor agus alltacht uirthi.

    A young policeman in a brand new uniform, a little too small for him, was on duty.
    ‘Well that you came,’ he said when Dineen asked after Maria Godley. ‘We have a woman in here who is not willing to tell us who she is. She is not in a cell and she is not in custody. She is upstairs in the Sergeant’s office, by the fire, drinking tea with him.’
    ‘Maria Godfrey in captivity at the DMP!’ said Eleanor with astonishment.

  • ‘Ní raibh de rogha acu ach í a thabhairt isteach,’ arsa an Duinníneach agus meangadh gáirí air. ‘Mura bhfuil dul amú [end p 17] orm, a chonstábla, is mar seo a tharla. Glaodh amach oraibh mar go bhfacthas bean ag briseadh isteach in uimhir a 33, Plásóg Charlotte?’

    ‘They had no choice but to bring her in,’ Dineen said with a smile. ‘If I am not mistaken, constable, this is what happened. You were called out because a woman was seen breaking into number 33, Charlotte Green?’

  • ‘Tháinig an glaoch ag 9.00 ar maidin.’
    ‘Chuaigh beirt phóilín go dtí an teach agus fuair siad rompu bean a bhí báite fliuch, préachta fuar, neirbhíseach agus ar meisce.’
    ‘Ní ólann Maria.’
    ‘Bhí boladh branda ar an ngloine sa chistin. Thuig sí go mbeadh leigheas fuachta sa bhranda. Chaith sí siar iomarca de, de cheal taithí, agus tháinig meisce uirthi.’

    ‘The call came at 9AM.’
    ‘Two policemen went to the house and found in front of them a woman soaking wet, perished with cold, nervous and drunk.
    ‘Maria doesn’t drink.’
    ‘The glass in the kitchen smelled of brandy. She understood there would be cold medicine in the brandy. She threw back too much of it, from lack of experience, and she became drunk.

  • ‘Bhí sí ag cur di i dtaobh[??] Santa a bheith ag goid cat,’ arsa an póilín.
    ‘Nuair a d’iarr sibh uirthi teacht anseo libh chuig an stáisiún, thug sí buille sa tsróin do dhuine éigin.’
    ‘Chnag sí an Sáirsint, ach cá bhfios duit gur sa tsróin a chnag sí é?’
    ‘Srón chun fola, a bhuachaill. Bhí go leor de sa sneachta.’
    ‘Ar éigean gur féidir liom a chreidiúint go n-ionsódh Maria póilín,’ arsa Eleanor. ‘Ar mhiste leat fios a chur uirthi.’

    ‘She was accusing Santa of stealing her cat,’ said the policeman.
    ‘When you asked her to come here with you to the station, she hit someone on the nose.’
    ‘She struck the sergeant, but how do you know she hit him in the nose?’
    ‘Bloody nose, lad. There was a lot of it in the snow.’
    ‘I can hardly believe Maria would attack a policeman,’ Eleanor said. ‘Would you mind letting her know/sending for her.’

  • ‘An gá daoibh í a thabhairt abhaile láithreach?’ a d’fhiafraigh an póilín óg agus luisne ina leicne.
    ‘Ar ndóigh, is gá,’ arsa Eleanor.
    ‘Thugas suas tae chucu[?] ar ball beag,’ ar seisean. ‘Bhí sí tagtha chuici féin agus bhí an Sáirsint ag insint di faoin gcaoi ar chaill sé a bhean Lá Nollag trí bliana ó shin. Togha fir an Sáirsint. Bhíos ag ceapadh . . .’
    ‘Cá bhfuil oifig an tSáirsint seo?’ a d’fhiafraigh Eleanor agus cuma chrosta uirthi. ‘Caithfidh Maria filleadh ar a cairde láithreach.’

    ‘Do you need to take her home immediately?’ the young policeman asked with cheeks blushing.
    ‘Of course, it is necessary,’ said Eleanor.
    ‘I gave them tea a little while ago,’ he said. ‘She has come to her senses and the Sergeant was telling her about how he lost his wife Christmas Day three years ago. The sergeant is a great man, I was thinking . . .
    ‘Where is the office of this Sergeant?’ Eleanor asked with a cross look. ‘Maria must return to her friends immediately.’

    ‘Speabhraíd éigin a bhuail Maria.’
    ‘Tuigeann tú an scéal ar fad anois is dócha, Eleanor. An tagairt sin do Santa.’
    ‘Ní thuigim agus dá thúisce agus is féidir Maria a thabhairt abhaile . . .’

    ‘Have patience, my dear,’ said Dineen. ‘Many strange things happen at Christmas and who would say that fate had no hand in the story.’
    ‘Some hallucination hit Maria’

  • ‘A Eleanor, a chroí, bhí réiteach na ceiste os comhair na súl againn ó thús ach nach bhfacamar[Mun] é. D’inis Penny dom ar maidin gur goideadh cat Mharia tamall ó shin . . . “fear le sacán ar a dhroim a ghoid é, ar mhaithe lena chraiceann, is baolach.” Ar maidin, d’fhéach Maria amach an fhuinneog agus chonaic sí Deaidí na Nollag ag teacht amach as an teach trasna an bhóthair uaithi. Tá dhá chat sa teach sin agus níl leanaí ann. Ar ndóigh, b’é a comharsa féin a bhí ann – é ar a bhealach chuig an ospidéal in éide na Nollag. Ach shíl Maria go raibh gadaí cruálach na gcat aimsithe aici. B’fhéidir – dá leanfadh sí é – go n-aimseodh sí a cat féin. Chaith sí uirthi a cóta. Cuimhnigh go raibh sé dorcha ag an am. Is istigh sa chóiste a thuig sí go raibh an lá ag gealadh agus go raibh sí gan airgead, gan eochair. Chuimhnigh sí ansin ar a col ceathar i bPlásóg Charlotte. Is cuimhin leat an grianghraf? Maria agus a col ceathar na leanaí sa phictiúir sin, ní foláir. Bhris sí isteach sa teach ar an tslí bhaineann – an modh díreach – cad eile a dhéanfadh sí, ón uair nach raibh a col ceathar sa bhaile? D’ól sí an branda a bhain dá bonnaibh[?] í. Táim den tuairim gur maith gur tháinig na póilíní uirthi nó b’fhéidir, faoin am seo, go mbeadh sí sioctha suas le hipiteirme.’

    ‘Eleanor, my heart, we had the solution of the question before our eyes from the beginning but we did not see it. Penny told me this morning that Maria’s cat had been stolen some time ago . . . “a man with a sack on his back … stealing a cat, for the sake of fur, is to be feared.” In the morning, Maria looked out the window and saw Santa coming out of the house across the road from her. This house has two cats and no children. Of course, it was her own neighbor — on his way to the hospital in Christmas uniform. But Maria thought it was the cruel thief that attacked her cat. Maybe – if she followed him – she would find her own cat. She wore her coat. Remember it was dark at the time. It was inside the coach that she realized that the day was dawning and that she was without money, without a key. She then remembered her cousin in Charlotte Green. Do you remember the photograph? Maria and her cousin are the children in those pictures, of course. She broke into the house the female way — the direct mode — what else would she do, since her cousin wasn’t home? She drank the brandy that took away her footing. I think that it is good the police came to her or maybe, by this time, she would have frozen up with hypothermia.

    ‘Tá tú ag rá linn go bhfuil sí tagtha chuici féin agus ag réiteach go maith leis an Sáirsint?’
    ‘Is geall le míorúilt é,’ arsa an fear óg.

    He turned to speak to the young policeman. ‘Are you telling us that she has recovered and is getting along well with the Sergeant?’
    ‘It is like a miracle,’ said the young man.

    Rug an Duinníneach greim láimhe uirthi.
    ‘An náireofá os comhair an tsaoil í, á tabhairt amach ar an mbóthar i lár an lae ina cuid ceaileacó? B’fhearr go mór fada go n-éalóimis linn anois agus dinnéar a bheith againn agus Maria a fhágáil faoin Sáirsint.’

    ‘I want to thank him for being discreet and kind,’ Eleanor said, ‘Speak with the driver, Father, that we will be with him in two minutes. I’ll go talk to Maria.’
    Dineen grabbed her hand.
    ‘Would you embarass her in front of the world, being brought out on the road in the middle of the day in her calico clothes? It would be much better for us to slip away now and have dinner and leave Maria with the Sergeant.’

Is maith nach mbeidh orm bia a cheannach go ceann seachtaine, ar seisean leis féin, ag cuimhneamh ar an gciseán lán bídh ba nós le Penny a thabhairt dó i gcónaí agus é ag filleadh abhaile.

    Bhí Hetty, Penny agus Belinda ag feitheamh leo, ag faire cois fuinneoige. Bhrostaigh siad amach chucu agus sceitimíní orthu. Níorbh é an dinnéir róchócáilte ba chás leo ach Maria. ‘Maria, cá bhfuil Maria?’
    ‘A leithéid de scéal atá againn do Mharia.’
    ‘Beidh sí chomh ríméadach le leanbh.’
    ‘Ní bheidh Maria chugainn inniu,’ arsa Ellen agus faobhar ar a glór. ‘Níl sí ar fónamh.’

    ‘We tell them at home that there is a headache and that Maria had a cold,’ he said to Eleanor. ‘If not today, then tomorrow.’
    Hetty, Penny and Belinda were waiting for them, watching by a window. They hurried out to them excitedly. Not the overcooked dinner, as was the case with them, but Maria.
    ‘Maria, where is Maria?
    ‘ ‘Such a story we have of Maria.
    ‘She will be as happy as a child.’
    ‘Maria will not be with us today,’ Eleanor said with an edge in her voice. ‘She is not well.’

Ní dócha gur féidir le Hetty ná Belinda é a thógáil ach oiread i ngeall ar an madra atá acu, agus d’íosfadh Pussykins é. A Athair Pádraig, nach dóigh leat? . . .’

    ‘What will we do with the kitten we got as a gift for Maria?’ said Ellen. ‘Of course, we can’t keep it to ourselves because I get asthma. Neither Hetty nor Belinda can take him on account of the dog they have, and Pussykins would eat it. Fr. Patrick, don’t you think? . . .’

    There was a flame in her eyes and a threat. It was a mild threat but it was a threat anyway. Dineen understood there would be payment from him for the miracles of Christmas.

Nótaí faoi scéalta

Tá Scéal ó nuacht pholaitiúil agam. ach baint pearsanta agam freisin.
B’fhéidir gur chuala sibh faoin Dochtúir Scott Atlas
Is dochtúir é a oibríonn do Trump.
Tugann sé comhairle do Trump faoi Covid.
Tá an chomhairle go dona.
Deir na nuachtáin agus an teilifís gur as Ollscoil Stanford é.
Ba mhac léinn iarchéime mé ag Ollscoil Stanford blianta fada ó shin
Léigh mé nuacht ó Stanford fós
Ní maith le muintir Stanford an Dochtúir Atlas
Ní úsáideann an Ollscoil a chomhairle.
Úsáideann sí comhairle eolaíoch mhaith faoi mhaisc, 7rl.
Seo an scéal: Oibríonn Atlas don Hoover Institution
Tá Institiúid Hoover ag Stanford, ach b’fhéidir nach cuid de Stanford é i ndáiríre.

Is think tank coimeádach é. Institiúid eite dheis
Tá an chuid is mó de mhuintir Stanford liobrálach go polaitiúil.
Tá cuid acu an-chlé
Tá sé seo cosúil le hollscoileanna eile, mar Ollscoil Minnesota
** castacomplicated
tá an baint idir an institiúid agus an ollscoil casta agus deacair
Is minic a bhíonn sí míshásta
Bhí sé mar sin daichead ocht mbliana ó shin, le linn chogadh Vítneam.
Nuair a tháinig mé bhí a lán fuinneoga san institiúid clúdaithe le boird
** agoidobjection, protest, demonstrationf
Bhí siad briste i gcíréibeacha an t-earrach roimhe seo
An bhliain naoi gcéad déag seachtó a dó1972
Níl aon rud athraithe
