but is a little over-weight. He greets people warmly.

And I'll just finish by saying what

an absolute honour it is for me to

finally win this prize. Thank you.

10 INT. GOLF CLUB - NIGHT 10

Billy gives the odd person a nod but is clearly uncomfortable

with the 'golf' crowd. He looks towards the STAGE where a

BANNER above it declares that it's the club's 'Lady Captains

Prize'.

Underneath it, YVONNE EGAN (55), who wears a lot of 'bling'

but is tastefully made up and in good shape for a woman of

her age, poses for PHOTOGRAPHERS, clutching a LARGE WATERFORD

CRYSTAL VASE. Her husband, ERNIE EGAN (56), is amongst them,

struggling to get the flash on his CAMERA to work.

As Billy gets to the bar with Tony, his eyes scan the room

and then totally FOCUS IN ON...

IMELDA EGAN (23), a stunning looking blonde girl, who sits

CLAPPING and LAUGHING with those around her.

TIME SEEMS TO SLOW DOWN for a moment and it's like Imelda is

the only person in the room.

Billy is broken out of his spell by an elbow from Tony as he

h ands him a PINT.

TONY:

Are ye with us, Billy?

(CONTINUED)

Billy nods and takes a large swig of his drink but continues

to WATCH as Yvonne and Ernie walk back to their table, where

Imelda gives her mother a hug.

The JAZZ BAND STRIKES UP.

A girl, NAOMI (23), grabs Imelda by the arm and pulls her

towards the dance floor.

Billy is in a trance as Imelda begins to move to the MUSIC.
