Barry, an old friend of Vincent's arrives in Ballykissangel with his girlfriend, Lyn. Barry and Lyn want to get married and Vincent has agreed to conduct the service. But it turns out that Barry has been married before and therefore can't be married again in the eyes of the church. Dooley has leased some land and a consortium want to build on it. While Liam and Donal are clearing the land, they discuss what they are going to do with the money they retrieved from Dooley. Liam suggests investing in Avril's horse, The Cat, as part of a syndicate. Vincent goes to Avril for some advice about marrying Barry and Lyn and she suggests that he doesn't want to upset Father Mac. This comment touches a raw nerve in the priest and he goes to ask Fr. Mac a second time. His reaction is the same: he forbids Vincent to marry them. Lyn feels ill and goes to see Doc Ryan. She is shocked when he tells her that she is pregnant. Written by
