-Welcome to Redwater.
-We're not here on holiday.
We're here because we're looking for someone.
Oh, what you going to do,
stand in the middle of town square and shout,
"Any blokes out there just found out they've been adopted?"
I want to be here. I really do, I want to be here for you.
But, Kat, please don't mess this up.
-Grandad! Grandad, we're here! Iris?
Did you know 'em?
The days of living and dying in one place are gone.
I say this especially to the younger ones.
See the world, have adventures.
I know why the London girl's here.
No good will comes of what she's doing.
It would unravel everything we've built here.
Peter isn't your real father. Iris wasn't your birth mother.
Kathleen Moon, she's your mother.
What do you want to do?
What are you doing?!
I got scared something was coming. Something horrible.
The man with haughty looks and arrogant heart...
..I will not endure.
If you lie your whole life, you cannot escape the wrath of God.
Bless me, Father, for I have sinned.
It has been one week since my last confession.
Lance Byrne died by my hand.
How you feeling, love? Bath warm enough?
I wish you'd stop fussing.
I'm your mother. It's my job.
You've never bothered before.
You're right, I'm not very good at this, am I?
You know I have no idea how to help you.
I could have saved him, Mam.
Adeen, his heart stopped. That's all there is to it.
Up at Cois Dara...
..I saw him.
He was kicking the walls.
When was this?
The day before he...
I should have said something, shouldn't I?
No. It all right, love.
Here you are, Tommy. Here you go. Before it melts, good boy.
What are you digging, Tommy?
It's a grave.
Been asking about Lance, then?
Yeah, well, you know what kids are like, curious, aren't they?
It's a good instinct. Too many of us shuffle around death.
You coming later?
Well, we didn't really know him, did we?
Sure you did. Lance took a real shine to your Kathleen.
You'll be welcome. Besides, the whole town will be there.
I want Mum.
-She's just at the shops, buddy.
-I want to find her.
Let's just enjoy our ice cream, yeah, good boy?
You not getting out?
I gotta check my mail. It's work stuff.
Beautiful, isn't it? Gets me every time.
Looks can be deceptive.
I'm so glad you came.
Of course I came.
He looks handsome.
No, leave it. The last thing we need is...
..for your daddy to be stuck here.
Mum, I doubt there's any danger of that.
Bringing in the bags.
Leave it. It's important to Mammy.
It's hokum. You know it is.
What if it's not?
Big bugger, in't he?
You all right?
Wish people would stop asking me that. I'm fine.
I lost my dad a couple of years ago. I'm still not fine.
Oi, oi! Want to slow down, love?!
I thought you were just going to the shop?
I just wanted time to think.
Missed out on the ice cream, didn't she, buddy?
Peter invited us to the dead man's party again.
It's called a wake.
He did mention it, yeah.
See, they want us there.
It's for people who knew him, Kat. That's not us, is it?
No, your dad's right. Don't want to be disrespectful, do we?
Are you sure you won't have some?
I don't do cake, Gran.
You like to keep fit, do you?
Course he does and isn't he grand looking?
You and your sister always loved it.
Mouse had such a sweet tooth.
That was Daddy's favourite. He said it captured Mouse's smile.
-How come you still can't make tea?
-What's wrong with it?
It tastes like piss.
It's not a bit fattening, there's no sugar in it.
Only a few raisins and a drop of whisky.
Do you remember that time with the barmbrack and Andy and Dermott?
You stole a barmbrack from the pantry.
Dermott was going to blame it on his dog.
-Yes, total hero, that dog.
Then Andy threw up. Projectile. Totally gave the game away.
Grandad was so cool.
He reckoned he'd knock up a new cake before you got back.
Oh, all that smoke. I thought the place was on fire.
Mam, have you seen Adeen?
She's not next door at yours?
Andy. Is that you?
I didn't know you'd arrived! How was the flight?
Oh, the free bar helped.
-Hey there, cous!
-Looking good, man.
Yeah. I mean, you too.
Granny Ag spoiling you, then, is she?
AGNES: What else are grandmothers for?
-Will you have tea, love?
-ANDY: No, I'm grand. Thanks, Mum.
Ah, put butter on it now.
Seriously, Gran. This is so good.
Could Adeen have gone up to see him?
It might be a good thing if she has.
OK, well, I'll catch yous later, yeah?
I'll come with you.
It were Adeen that found him.
That's a girl.
Ah, this is Daddy's.
No, don't give me the sad face.
Want some do you. Here you go, one. There you go. Good, girl.
Adeen, stop! DOG BARKS
You go, it's your last day at work. I can sort this.
You've already lost her! Well, she said she was fine.
-Is this about Adeen?
-"Fine". Did you really just say that?!
I didn't mean she's fine, just that she said she was fine.
-She's not out the back.
-She's OK, I'm telling you.
She's not OK or fine. What's wrong with you two?!
I mean, the poor kid has not been eating or sleeping.
She looks like a Goth and it's not even intentional!
-Is her bike still here?
-Yes, because she's on the horse.
Why did you not stop her?
Going full pelt on that brute? I'd like to see you try, Roisin.
Let me go.
You told your granny you would set up for the wake.
You know, I did try, son, really I did.
I did well with the cake, huh? Three slices.
Cousin Andrew showed you the way, did he?
I'll be the size of a truck by the time we leave.
..is it good to be home?
What, with your dead grandfather just down the hall?
You know your granny's even got the windows open so his spirit can rise!
-You're kidding me.
Ten days...of this.
We can do it, Mom.
Hey. Don't look so worried.
It's just your sister up to her usual tricks.
She's sad about great-grandad.
We all are, aren't we?
So let's build him the best fire, yeah?
Found Dad's stash, then?
Nothing changes here, does it?
Great to see you, Andy.
Shame you never made it out to the States again.
Ah, it's just hard with the kids, you know.
Definitely your mother's son.
I take it that's not a compliment?
So have you seen him yet?
Gran and Mam, they're both in bits, you know.
And I'm not?
I don't know. Are you?
Don't let Jonjo see. I don't usually.
Can't see how you can survive without it.
Mam thought you wouldn't come.
Kieran made me, so she can blame him.
We've missed you, you know?
Even Mam has, so...
Good man, Jonjo, that's my boy.
'Is she back?'
No, no sign.
Jonjo, go get a few more stones there, will you?
Well, go on.
Have you tried her friends?
She's hardly going to take Enbarr round to a mate's.
She's not on Grandad's beach? You've checked there, right?
'Yes, all right, smartarse, I'll go now.'
I'm sure this baby of yours is munching on my brain.
At the hour of our...
Lance came to me.
It's all right, Enbarr. It's all right.
Are you OK? Are you OK?
It's OK. Let it go.
It's OK. I've got you.
You took me from my mother.
You have to understand, she didn't want you. She gave you away.
No, you did this. This is down to you!
You needed a mother and I found you one.
What is it, son?
You're loved by us.
You found God in Redwater.
That's why you came here. It was meant.
Don't you see that?
God wanted you raised in Redwater. You were safe here.
You wouldn't be a priest if you'd stayed with her.
Do you understand that?
Now this stays here with us, Dermott. Think of your daddy.
This would break him. You know it would.
-Who art in heaven...
Adeen just needs to stop running, son...and face it.
Remember that kitten you had, got mashed up in the tractor?
You wouldn't stop crying for days.
Yeah, you made me pick him up and bury him.
-It's hardly the same thing.
Yeah, but, son, you faced it, that was the point.
I'd better get back.
I should go.
Oh, no, you don't.
You're still our boy, Dermott, and I need you here.
Nothing changes that. Come on.
Next time you say you're going to cook, I'm going to get a takeaway.
What is it?
Just looking at your holiday pics.
I just wanted one picture.
One? You've got about ten on here!
All right, stop that and go and get in the shower?
It's the pan that's manky, not me.
We're going out, ain't we?
You mean it? The wake?
Just to see him. You've got to promise me.
Nothing more, all right?
So what's made you change your mind?
Well, cos we never know what's going to happen next, do we?
-Well, look at you!
-Hard not to.
Well, shoot me for making an effort.
Dermott? Is that you? Hey, man, it's great to see you.
I'm sorry about your grandad. He was a great man.
Yeah. You were close to him, right?
You're putting me to shame here.
Well, Kieran here is apparently one of those gays.
-Hey, Mam, do we have any more of that baysil?
She's doing her poncey American thing again.
It's not poncey, it's the way I speak.
Eileen, I don't want to see anyone without a drink or something to eat.
I've got this. Why don't you go get changed.
Oh, God, the apple tarts. They'll be ready.
Mam, go on! Go and change.
I'll get the tarts.
Should I go after Grandma or...?
No, I will. Don't worry. I'll keep a good eye on her.
Thanks, Derm. You're a gem.
I thought a wake went after a funeral.
Not in Ireland.
Tommy, remember, farms can be dangerous, all right?
Kat, we don't even know if this Andrew's the right bloke.
Just tell me if you spot him, yeah?
You want some popcorn?
Who are they?
English on holiday. Daddy took a shine to the wife.
-She can fairly drink!
I like the sound of her already.
That's got to be Lance's other daughter.
-Yeah. Didn't know he had one.
Whoa, where are you going?
-Alfie, that's Roisin's sister.
-So, I reckon I'd know if my sister kidnapped a baby.
Before Lance died, did he seem OK to you?
-Fit as a fiddle. You know that.
-I'm not talking about his health.
Look, what were you thinking, going into the water like that?
So what was I supposed to do?
How you doing? Have you warmed up yet?
You haven't seen your great-grandad yet, have you?
-No, love, don't push it.
-It'll help her through.
-Seeing him at rest.
..will you trust your old man on this one?
-Yeah. You'll be grand, I promise you.
Sounds like you've met the whole clan.
This place is like that, in't it? Friendly like.
Well, that's one word for it.
Not sure it's the one I'd use.
Kat, you promised.
Yeah. It's good to see you.
-Do you mind?
This is family business.
-Let's give them some space, yeah?
-Thank you, Alfie.
I was just trying to talk to him.
They're burying their grandad tomorrow.
So you're not close, then, you and your sister?
Oh, well, Daddy always said that we were like a match and kindling.
No prizes for guessing which one of us is which.
She's just got the one son, then, yeah?
Yeah. Cousin Andy, the fit farmer.
-Could have been you if we'd stayed.
Kieran's a lawyer. Fast track to keeping his mother in style.
I wanted to be a bum, but she just wasn't having it.
So you were in the States when she had Andrew?
Oh, no, no, no, that was much later on.
Er, you know, I was the first one to hold him.
I didn't know that.
Yeah, your auntie was with the doctor and I took little Andy
there to the fire and curled up with him and Mouse.
So Andrew was born here, was he?
Oh, Jesus! Peter Dolan! You scared the life out of me!
Don't touch what you could never afford!
-You have never lost it, Eileen?
-I'll set Mammy on you later.
Now I'm proper scared.
-Sorry to hear about your da.
Kat, let's give it up, just for now, yeah?
-Finish our drinks?
You know, he's got that "butter wouldn't melt" look on him.
The one that drove Granny mad.
I think Daddy's right.
Is that make-up?
It's what they do.
Just to give him a bit of colour, you know?
I thought he was a seal.
Well, he's been called many things in his life,
but I reckon that's a first.
I wanted a pic for Jonjo.
You took some pictures?
-I didn't know it was him!
-Hey, it's OK.
Adeen, are they still on your phone?
Will you give it to me, love? I'll make sure they're gone.
And then I stopped to pick up a shell.
He does look peaceful, doesn't he?
You know he'd be the last person who'd want you to be sad, Adeen.
So will you come and sing for him?
He always loved to hear you sing.
You got shot by a UFO!
This is for great-grandad, my Double G.
It was one of his favourites.
MUSIC: The Parting Glass
# Of all the money that e'er I've had
# I spent it in good company
# And all the harm I've ever done
# Alas it was to none but me
# And all I've done for want of wit
# To memory now I can't recall
# So fill to me the parting glass
# Goodnight and joy be with you all
# Of all the comrades
# That e'er I've had... OTHERS JOIN IN
# Are sorry for my going away
# And all the sweethearts that e'er I've had
# Would wish me one more day to stay
# But since it falls unto my lot
# That I should rise and you should not
# I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
# Goodnight and joy be with you all
# Goodnight and joy be with you all. #
That was amazing, love, amazing.
What was it Lance always said?
Don't go getting drunk, or who'll hold me up?
What's she doing here?
You are not welcome.
Pete said it was OK...
-You've got some nerve.
-Agnes, come on.
We're just going to find Tommy and leave, OK?
All your meddling nonsense. How dare you come here?
You have no right to stir this up.
He told you why we came here, didn't he?
He was a good man, your husband. He cared.
-And now he's dead.
-He listened to me. He understood.
He was an idiot. Was probably the drink talking.
Kat, we should go now.
Look, you're a mother. Wouldn't you want to find him?
Oh, you gave up that right when you let him go.
I didn't know I had a son! AGNES LAUGHS
I was out cold.
They took him before I woke.
Look, I was just a kid.
I didn't tell anyone I was pregnant till I was eight months gone.
There's nothing for you here.
Dad, have I got a big brother?
Hey, listen. Don't worry about it, we'll talk about it on the way home.
I hope tomorrow goes well. I will stay away, I promise.
Have I got a big brother?
Tommy, we'll talk about it later, all right?
Come on, get in the car.
How long have you been there?
Hell of a time, eh?
I don't know how it happened, Da.
If you're the priest saying that, what chance have the rest of us?
Lance made out he was such a great guy, didn't he?
But he drank.
Well, you could tar me with that brush.
Yeah, but you stopped.
Half the time he didn't give a cuss about his family.
You were always saying that.
None of us is without sin.
Isn't that supposed to be your line?
I'll let you use it today if you like.
OK, so if you ask me honestly?
Lance was a self-serving rogue, but he'd a big heart, hadn't he?
Maybe that's the thing you should say when you're stood up there.
No-one's really bad, are they? Not, like, rotten all the way through.
It's kind of nice to think Mouse will be with Grandad now.
Is that crazy?
They always got on.
I think it was because she was the only girl, you know?
Stories people were telling about him last night.
I don't remember. I mean, Mouse, yes, but not what happened.
That night out there... not any of it, really.
Well, that's because you've moved on. That's a good thing, isn't it?
I wonder what she'd be like now?
-Come on, let's go and get ready.
We was going to tell you about him.
Your mum's telling the truth, buddy, all right?
-We just haven't found him yet.
-Then why are we leaving?
Because last night, me and your dad decided that we want to get
you back to Spain and we miss the twins, don't we?
Yeah. Just got to print off the boarding passes. That's all.
Leave me here.
Tommy, I'd never leave you anywhere. You know that.
You left him!
Tommy, come and sit on this for me.
That's it. Bounce up and down a bit.
Right, that's it, good boy.
Don't give me a hard time.
-I want to find my brother.
-So do I.
Me and you, we can find him.
Will you give it a rest?!
..when I found out about him, I had a pain...
and it's still there because all my kids,
you are my world and now he is too.
So if he's out there somewhere, believe me, I will find him,
no matter how long it takes, all right?
He'll be all right once we're on the plane.
Typical Eileen, slipping away without telling anyone.
They set off early. I heard the car when I was milking.
What do you want her for anyway? We're all set, aren't we?
Solicitor dropped this by. It's your daddy's will.
He wanted us all here. Ever the diva, your daddy.
Where did you go, on today of all days?
We went to the memorial.
-Well, you'd better sit down. We've Daddy's will to read.
Couldn't that wait?
This is what he wanted -
to go to the grave with everything sorted.
I'll, um, leave you to it.
Padraig, would you mind?
"I, Lance Samuel Byrne of Byrne Farm, Redwater, declare that this is
"my last will and testament.
"To my wife Agnes, I leave memories of both good times and bad.
"I hope she will treasure them and forgive me.
"She was always the woman I loved most.
"To my children, I leave all my worldly goods..."
-This includes Byrne Farm, Cois Dara and all the farmland
to be divided between them equally.
If he wasn't already dead, I'd strangle him myself.
It makes no odds, mam.
As far as we're concerned, the farm is yours.
Yes, she's right. It really doesn't matter.
No sign of your mammy?
Kat, have you got room for Tommy's trainers?
I've shut the case.
I'll put them in here, then.
If you want it to break - you can't squash it all in.
I just don't want to carry it, all right?
-What about that bucket and spade?
Right, almost done. Just these few bits from the washing line.
Yeah, well, good luck to you getting all that in the case.
Don't worry about that, love. Right, Tommy? Come on, buddy.
We've got time for one ice cream.
Hold on, I thought he was with you.
Give me comfort, Lord, so that I may do your bidding.
-Well, look who's here.
-Except I'm not.
You look like a Weeble.
And you look like shite, but do you hear me going on about it?
I need you to get this to the lab, photos for enhancement.
You're on maternity. You're not authorised.
Which is why I've put your name on it.
Oh, now, Bernie...
Thanks, Dougie. Appreciate it.
It's probably nothing, but fast-track it, will you?
Thank you, Dermott.
Come on, where are you?
Do you think she'll be all right?
She's been with him forever.
They weren't always happy.
You're not going to rock the boat, are you?
I mean, about the farm. It's Mammy's, it's not ours.
I don't get why he left it to us.
There must have been a reason.
Let's get to the pub before we drown, eh?
Sleep tight, Daddy.
Tommy, run back and find your mam. Go on.
Where's your mammy?
Does it hurt?
Not if it's your time, no.
Was it his?
I have to go back to the church.
Come with me. Come on, get out of the rain.
We're going to miss the plane at this rate.
No, Alfie, we can't. I promised.
Tommy's missing. That's all that matters now, come on.
Excuse me. You made me a promise.
I know, I'm really sorry. It's just... We've lost Tommy.
-What do you mean "lost"?
-Well, he was upset after last night.
Now he's done a runner somewhere.
Listen, everyone. Listen a minute!
Kathleen and Alfie are looking for Tommy.
-What is he, about seven?
Little boy, anyone seen him?
Come on, he's probably back at the house.
Wait. He was at the church. Just as the rain started.
-Are you sure?
I... Sorry. I told him to run and look for you.
I should have waited.
Come back if you can't find him. We'll get folks out looking.
Thank you, I appreciate it. Sorry.
My God. Dermott.
It's nothing. I won't be long.
She's beautiful, isn't she? The way every mother should be.
My mum's beautiful.
She's not pure, though.
No mother is as pure as the Virgin.
People let you down. Always. Time and time again.
My mum doesn't. She's not like that.
She's like the sun. She makes me warm.
Have you found him?
No, we haven't.
He's looking for his brother.
What, you told him?
Yeah, we had to. He heard too much.
Please wait here.
Dermott? Are you here?
Well, would you look at that?
What... What you doing? I ain't being funny, but...
I hope you don't mind.
He just wanted to know what it was like.
-Mum, I did it.
-Yeah, come on, mate, you can tell us on the way.
We need to make a move if we're going to catch this plane.
-But we can't go.
You can't go.
Now, Dermott, remember what we said.
Mum, I did it. I found my brother.
I'm your son.
A death in the village has huge ramifications for the wider family, and with Kathleen's only ally now dead, will anyone ever help her to find out the truth about her son?
