March Murder Mystery:
Murder Most Green – March 13th, 6:00 PM
One hundred years ago, Pader Flaherty arrived in town and built a greenhouse to grow plants which were popular in his native Ireland. Through the years, operations expanded and, ten years ago, Pader’s grandson Patrick became majority owner of a business that is still family-run. Today, Flaherty’s True Green Plant Nursery is a major producer of shamrocks, supplying the entire state with the plant, especially for “the wearin’ of the green.” Although rumors persist that family members have been at odds with each other for years, the family has maintained an outward calm, denying all rumors of a rift.
Last night, family, the nursery staff, and the nursery’s best customer gathered at the Blarney Inn to celebrate the nursery’s 100th anniversary of operation. Patrick Flaherty was the center of attention as the nursery’s milestone was toasted. He was supposed to spend the night at the Inn with members of his family but, this morning, his body was found in the pond at the rear of the nursery.
Tonight was to have been another party – this one celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, with Patrick in attendance as the honored guest. Instead, it will be Patrick’s wake.

April Murder Mystery:
Lurking Down the Bunny Trail – April 10th, 6:00 PM
For 20 years, Benson’s Big Beautiful Bunny Boutique has been the premier breeder of rabbits for springtime holidays. Owner Barney Benson built an operation that prides itself in the quality cottontails it provides both to local pet stores and to the public. Benson is renowned for the innovative techniques he uses that have revolutionized rabbit breeding.
Daily, admiring visitors to the boutique take guided tours, then select the perfect bouncing pets from his state-of-the-art rabbit hutch, complete with environmental controls and automated bunny feeder. But all is not well because, yesterday, as Barney was opening for business, a huge letter “B” from the new sign hanging atop the hutch suddenly dislodged and fell on him, striking Barney in the head and leaving the boutique leaderless.
What at first seemed like a tragic accident was so suspicious to police that they soon declared the bunny breeder had met an untimely demise at the hands of a killer. Someone had done away with the lord of the leap by tattooing him with his own initial.
