His father, Michael, a mechanic, becomes chair of the support group. The press for answers strains his relationship with his wife. High-ranking police speak in bromides.

Nothing much. Took it easy.

Bit of telly.

It's a beautiful morning,

isn't it?


Hi. How are you?

How's it going?

You want to bring up those buns?

They look really nice.



Marie, you've played concerts

all over Europe this year

as well as Belfast

and here in Omagh, too.

But what would you say has been

the highlight of the summer?

Without a doubt, Val,

it's been a wonderful year

for me musically,

but the highlight has to be

the signing of

the Good Friday Agreement.

That has to be the highlight

for all of us.

Come on, you lot,

it's gone 9:

I got it.

Ah, Aiden, hang on.

I have to get into town.

Pack it in, you two.

He's always at it, Da.

Aiden, come on.

I said we'd take Darra

this afternoon.

Give Sharon a wee break.

It'll be lovely to see

wee Darra. What time?

She'll drop him up

around 3:
00 or 4:00.

- Dad, are you all set?

- Aye.

I'll get it.

- See you later, love.

- Okay.

- Bye.

- Talk to you later, Mum.

Aye, okay.

Salad Bowl at 1:

Oh, no, she's busy

with the wean.

Think we could look

at your sister's car today?

Think we're better things

to be at.

- Bye, everybody.

- See you later.

- Such a bleedin' carry on.

- Yeah.

So, where are youse going later?

Head down to Sally's maybe.

Go to the front bar.

Good fun?

Or what?

Place is pumpin', like.

Where do I start on this thing?

She said she was having trouble

with it overheating.

She needs to get a new one.

Aye. She doesn't listen

to a word you say, though.


I'm away, Mummy.

Okay, love.

- Yeah, see you later.

- See you later, love.

- No, it's not moving, Da.

- What?

It's not moving.

Here, try this one, son.

Aye, that'll do there.

It's a bit bigger than mine.


No better, so it's not.

- There you go.

- Aye, give us that one there.

Where did you get that, Da?

In the old toolbox.

- Give us another one.

- That'll work.

I got it, Da.

There's a wee hole

in the pipe here. Look.

- See it there?

- Oh, I see it, aye.

A wee bit of welding will sort

that out, sure.

Is that Mike?

Oh, no, we were to head

into town.

No, it's grand.

I'll tell him to wait.

No, you go on ahead.

I can do this.

- Are you sure, Dad?

- Aye, aye, absolutely.


Will you bring up

the welding equipment?

- Yeah.

- Good lad.

- I'll see you later, Da.

- See you later, son.

- See you, Michael.

- See you, Mike.

Oh, if you're going up to the

house, will you bring some milk?

Aye, no bother.

There's also gonna be a parade

going down

through the main town center

past Market Street

and Sudan Avenue,

and the weather forecasts

are looking great.

All across the Province

the weather is looking good.

- All right, Mummy?

- Ach, Aiden.

I'm just heading up the town

to buy some jeans.

Okay, love, see you later.

Oh, Aiden?

Cathy's meeting Donna

in the Salad Bowl.

Can you tell her not to forget

about the vegetables?

That's grand. I've put

some milk in the fridge.

Good lad.

Good on you.

- See you later.

- See you later.

Oh, Mummy, what size am I?

Now, check the label.

Don't be getting the wrong ones.

And, Aiden, try them on.

Any word from John, hey?

No, haven't heard from him.

Aye, we should call round now.

That's what I was planning to.

Sure, he was steaming

last night, so he was.


He was falling all over

the place. It was well funny.

Doing the Pogo.

Can you believe that?

It's no wonder

he was kicked out.

He's been barred from there

before, hasn't he?

He'll not get back in there

in a hurry.

Okay, okay.


Stay together in your groups,

all right?
