Niamh and Ambrose have another major row and she leaves for the day. Ambrose has to scramble for child care with Siobhan and Grandpa Brian helping out. Brian also realizes that his daughter's marriage is in deep trouble and gives Ambrose some advice. Niamh runs into Sean Dillon at a pub in Cilldargan and their conversation leads her to wonder even more what her life would have been like if she had made different choices. Donal comes up with another money-making scheme and Brian puts him in charge of the idea - much to Liam's annoyance. His plan may lead to tragedy however when Donal cannot be found. A stranger leaves an envelope in the confessional addressed to Kathleen Hendley. He turns out to her true love from many years before. She had lent him some money so he could go to England and establish himself before sending for her. She never heard from him again. Now, she has the opportunity to learn why. Written by garykmcd
