Storyline

Father Clifford seems unable to convince constable Ambrose that a statue of St. John the Baptist which narrowly missed hitting him by a hair when falling from the church is coincidence. Ambrose calls off his marriage plans and declares that he wants a clerical vocation. Assumpta Fitzgerald tells Brian Quigley she's no longer stocking draft stout for lack of other customers, but the brewery shares his feeling that its a national heritage. Brian insists on having the engagement reception even without the fiancé, but a patron saints mix-up proves a godsend. Written by KGF Vissers
