A Moo Cow Came Travelling

Mark Mulholland

Humanity encounters enlightened bovinity over tea in an Irish pub on the edge of the universe. Douglas Adams meets Roddy Doyle!

This whimsical, wise yarn introduces an intergalactic travelling Moo Cow named Elnorow who arrives in an Irish village one ordinary day to take tea at Meegan’s Pub with the landlady, Mrs Margaret-Mary Meegan, and discuss the philosophy of life and the magnificence of the cosmos with Billy Daly, the village school principal. Elnorow thrills the school children and raises the suspicions of the police chief and the town postmistress before departing, as he came, on his flying bicycle with his blue shoulder bag trailing behind him.

A cow on a bicycle, once seen and heard by fifty-one children and a supervising schoolyard teacher, was always going to cause some sort of a rumpus.

A story for all ages.
