Owen O’Leary is descended from a long line of characters and rogues.
Owen’s paternal grandfather, Otis O’Leary, while making his 100th tour of the Guinness Brewery, jumped into a vat of ale. Otis fought off all attempts at rescue and died a happy death.
Owen’s uncle, Ollie “El Cheapo” O’Leary, once hit an errant golf shot off a flying duck which then caromed off an outhouse and into the cup. Unseen by golfing companions, Ollie surreptitiously removed the ball from the cup and dropped it in the rough. Hence, “El Cheapo” avoided buying a round of drinks for his hole in one.
