Pól's up to his usual antics again... Classic Pól!

Going back to the previous sentence "Chonaic mé mo dheartháir ag an gcóisir," we learn that the other girl was actually his sister, who'd gone over to talk to him after finding him at the party. There had been some confusion because brother had been staying with father and sister with mother when they were separated over mother's affair with Pol.

So the girlfriend actually saw the two of them, not a new girlfriend. In her defense she wasn't pathologically jealous, just a little bit tipsy from her wine drinking after picking herself up from a bad fall in the kitchen and so this added to the confusion. Even so, her own mother, the teacher who'd argued and fought with Pol and Pol's ex wife, will advise her to dump the boy on principle.

Dumpáil an buachaill! Fiú Ritheann a mhadra fiáin! And his grandmother has nine cats!

The other girl might have been his cousin. She should confirm that he was cheating <sub>before</sub> she dumps a load of fish into his convertible.

I'd tell that girl to ditch him. Once a cheater, always a cheater.
