In 2016 I was coming home from the north, having been at my uncle's wake, and the night bus stopped in Monaghan Town at a Topaz/Circle K/Apple Green/whatevs that had a jacks and a late night deli and stuff. Apart from me and a few weary long distance coachers the place was thronged with teens and early 20s boys and girls, all in cowboy hats and boots.
