It's time again for the annual races, which Dr. Ryan has won for the last 5 years. Danny Byrne, Eamon's nephew, has entered his own horse, Razor, in the race and the good doctor thinks his run of wins may be coming to an end. Orla moves out of her brother's house and into her new digs - the Gard house, but drug dealer Johnner Delaney, whom Ambrose arrested 6 months before, is now out on parole and puts a brick through the window. He makes it known that he's out to get Ambrose. Niamh is none too pleased leading to a row with Ambrose who is determined to settle this himself. Orla moves in with Padraig and Kevin for a few days but Padraig has more than having just a lodger in mind. Written by garykmcd
