Mysterious occurrences are the norm in Ballykissangel these days. It starts with Brendan's fishing bag mysteriously disappearing and is followed by bats in the cellar and the sound of an unseen horse galloping in the woods. It all starts when Paul Dooley learns that the owner of the pub also owns the fishing rights to the stream and decides it might be a moneymaker. Several have warned him of curses and other eerie past events when anyone tried to exercise those rights but he dismisses that out of hand until he begins to have his own strange encounters. Meanwhile, Kathleen Hendley has won a car and decides to take driving lessons, much to the chagrin of many of Ballyk's residents who now have to be extra careful crossing the street.
