What are you doing?

Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you.

I used to live here.

My father was Jack Daly.

I've been abroad for some time.

Mr. Daly did mention his

son when we bought the house.

I didn't mean to frighten you, sorry.

So have you moved back into the area?

Yes, a small place, not far from here.

Oh yes, you're back already? Okay.

Yes, I spoke to the

supervisor and as I thought,

you don't qualify for assistence.

Did you tell them, that I have

nowhere else to live?

This is about rules and regulations.

But surely you must have some

relatives you can stay with.


Fill in those forms and drop

them back and we'll see what happens, okay?

That's the best I can do.

- Not the confident type.

- Maybe he's got some gear.

Does he look like a skag-head to you?

You wanna give him a rattle?


Leave him for now.


I'm Cathal.

Do you talk at all?

You live here, don't ye?

There's no shame in it.

Look... I've nowhere else either,

except me car.

Made it in life, me.

I'm Fred.

Glad to meet you, Fred.

You know, you've nothing to fear from me.

You here long?

A while now.

Want a drag?

No, I don't do drugs.

If I was to indulge...

...well... gin used to be my tipple.

Yea, sophisticated gentleman.

Looking at me here today,

not many would say that.

Where do you wash?

The toilets.

Sometimes the back of my car,

I keep a drum of water in the boot.

Good idea!

Have you never tried the sports centre?

No. No, I haven't...

Yea, it's nice here.

Right, here... Age before beauty.

Now, your turn.

Now that works.

You wanna try?

No, thanks.

Should you be using an

inhaler with cannabis?

I suppose it's no worse than alcohol.

Sometimes I smoke heroin.


You don't approve.

Why do you do it?

Cause it's a real break

from this shite reality.

Nah, is your reality that bad?

My dad...


...blamed me when me mum died.

Yeah, he chucked me out of

the house and everything.

Just because somebody blames you

or pushes you away...

...doesn't mean you should give up.

Is that what you do?

Where are all the cars going to?

Do you not remember being young?

Hey! Hey you!

Oh, Jesus!

Come here!

I'm sorry.

You're fine, I'm sorry.




Hello, Fred.

You swim well.

Oh... thank you.

Okay ladies, it's time now.

You're here to swim, yea?

You can leave gossiping for later time?

And leave the man alone.


Good looking babes.

You're watching one.

Geez, I hope it's not the

one in the back there.

F*ck, even I could do better than that.

No! No!

Look, if I tell you... Promise

man. I won't say a thing.

My lips are sealed and all that.

See the blonde one there?

Nice choice.


Stop it!

Would you not go and ask her out?

That would work, hmm?

Hello, I'm Fred. I live in my car,

would you like to come to dinner?

Got ya!

52 in the kitty... Minus five per week...

...for health club...

Less... food...


Nice job, maybe you can do mine now.

Come on, open up, we need to get going!


I'm here about my claim.

Still in the car park?

Unfortunately, yes.

I think your claim is back,

just let me get the file.

They disallowed the claim.

You can appeal the decision.

But all the time I was in England,

I paid my dues!

I'm sure you did.

But if you've no fixed abode,

no assistence.

Will you come on, for f*ck's sake,

we're waiting here!

Do you want to get served in here today?

Listen, you have tried for

a job, have you?

If he could get a job,

do you think he'd be here?

It was just a thought.

Come on, Fred, let's go.

Well that was brilliant.
