Brian Quigley literally dreams up his next business venture when he wakes up one morning Orla tells her brother, Father Aidan O'Connell, that it's his turn to buy groceries but he had never discussed salary with Father McAnally and isn't even sure if he is being paid. He has his own solution go paying the grocery bill however. Sean Dillon's 16 year-old daughter Emma unexpectedly arrives in Ballykissangel. He's surprised to see her and his harsh tone forces her to run off leading to a search of the area. Niahm and Kieran move into the pub but Gard Ambrose isn't sure it's proper for him to live above a licensed establishment. Siobhan meanwhile is approaching her due date and insists on giving birth at home. She has Brendan set up a birthing pool but things don't quite go as planned. Written by garykmcd
