I mean, you don't want people thinking,

just because I got me name|in the papers and all that,

that Martin Cahill is too posh to do|his own dirty work, now, do you, huh?

For f*ck's sake...

Take the gag out of his mouth.

Let the little scumbag squeal.|It's what he's good at, isn't it? Squeal!


- I'm sorry!|- How are you?

- You made lunch. Aren't you great?|- I must be.

- Hi.|- Hi, Jimmy.

Off to a big news story, are we?

Come on, Ronnie. Give us a scoop.|Who's the scumbag of the week?

Go and buy the paper, little brother.|You ready for me?

- Did I say something?|- Don't look at me. She's your sister.

- Warm enough?|- Yeah.

Night. Night, darling.|I'm in the other room if you need me.


He won't have any trouble sleeping tonight.

That's cos you wore him out|on the football pitch.


- What's up?|- Nothing.

Nothing or something?

It's bollocks, what I'm writing.

- Give yourself a bit of credit for a change.|- Whatever. So it's half-decent bollocks.

It's light. It's human interest.

It's bollocks.

What a state, on the street.|There were needles everywhere.

- Right where the kids were playing.|- Jesus.

You should have seen these wankers.|Standing there with their new Mercedes.

How many 5 hits of dope do you need|to shift in order to buy a new Mercedes?

Do the math. How many kids is that?

Nobody's writing about it. Nobody cares.

Somebody needs|to get after these bastards.

They're making megabucks.|That's what I should be writing about.

That wouldn't be bollocks.

The pushers are using the underage kids|to do their business.

They know the Gards won't touch the kids.|Everyone knows what goes on here.

Eight kids from this block alone|died from drugs last year. Eight.

All of them under 15.|Four of them were me sister Iris's kids.
