Murder and Mead
The Lady Grace Mysteries
Grace O’Malley has returned to Kinvara, Co. Galway, and the familiar surroundings of Galway Bay. This little ‘Brigadoon’ is heaven on earth with its very own medieval Castle, Dunguaire, named after the famous King Guaire. For years the castle has been a venue for Irish Medieval Banqueting, and for years singing and acting to hundreds of tourists made up the world of ‘Lady Grace’. Now 20 years on, Grace has returned. Her new life a mystery to the town’s people, but for one. Yet again, the castle calls, inviting her beyond its walls, to drown in its murky past of ‘Murder and Mead.’
