The Coupla by Philip Casey

‘Ooh, Coupla!’ she squealed, laughing at them. She often used words from her other language, and ‘Coupla’ sounded like cúpla, her word for twins. The twins were only four at the time. ‘The two of you are rogues, so you are!’

Kate and Dan are twins. When they were three, their mother Ana walked into the sea. Cormac, their dad, and Mrs Janey who looked after them while he was away, both tried their best to comfort them, but they still missed her.

The story begins when they meet the strange Ms Cliona, who lures them to the Underworld on dolphins, surrounded by a cocoon of white light.

Bewildered, they are forced to go through challenge after challenge on wondrous and enchanting islands, where they meet powerful ancient beings known as Síoga. Most of the Síoga are kind. Some are nasty. One, however, is like a mother to them, and they begin to wonder if Ana has really died, or if she is a powerful Síog who is 5,000 years old.
