-I want to buy myself out of our arrangement.
I'm going to go to the guards
and tell them I killed Brian.
Michael, call the guards.
Unless you want me to rearrange that pretty face of yours.
Want to watch your kids around this fella here.
Abducted my nephew last week, he did.
He wants us to do a job for him.
-Smokes again, is it?
The stuff she was saying.
Stuff about Brian. Mad stuff.
This is a one way trip back to the Joy,
and you just bought us both a ticket.
-Did he tell you about Brian?
-Yeah, he told me everything.
-Then why did you let him go?!
-Ray, you need to sit down.
24 hours, this will be done.
Then you can have your precious business back.
-You have to let me in there!
-No, give me the code.
No, no, I did it, OK? It wasn't him!
Ignore her. She's not well. Come on home, Ray.
No, I want to talk to Dad.
-Dad isn't here.
-You're a bit confused.
Stop saying that.
Sean, will you tell her that Dad isn't here?
He is. He's in with Nikki.
What's taking so long? Can we start?
Turn the camera on, do whatever it is you do.
Where do I start?
You're going to have to help me out here, Liam...
I told you - I killed him.
McGonigle, it was me.
And why are you telling me this now?
After all this time?
Conor Tyrell has been locked up in Mountjoy,
and you let us do that?
And now you're saying that we've got all this wrong?
We have evidence, Liam.
No, you don't. You just think you do.
I'm confessing to murder.
You got your man. Can we just cut to the chase?
You're going to have to relax.
You're going to tell me what happened - every single step.
Here, come on, drink this.
-Yeah, he is. I did it and I told you I did it.
Yeah, come on. Let's just give your sister a bit of space, yeah?
-Get off me. Listen to me.
-Listen to me!
-..I think you'd better
-come out for a bit of fresh air, yeah? Come on.
Out, out, out. Come on.
I don't know why he's doing this. It's not true.
-I did it, I killed him, I want to confess!
-If you don't stop shouting, I'll have to arrest you
for breach of the peace, yeah?
Let me get you a cup of tea.
-Niamh, tell them.
Will you shut up?!
-Just let me talk to him.
-After his interview, yeah.
No, now, please.
I can't, all right? I can't.
You mean you won't.
Niamh, come on, I can't be seen to be making exceptions.
Niamh, come on. You're going to get yourself into serious trouble.
-Let go of me.
You're only making things worse.
-You're only worried about yourself.
-Cos that's all I care about.
-Liam's like family to me.
-Well, he's not your family, he's mine.
He's my dad, and he didn't do this.
If you don't calm down, you're going to get yourself arrested.
-Go on. Do it.
-Look at me.
Look at me.
Not my dad. Not my dad.
Come on, come on.
So he was on the run and he decides to call you,
the man who battered him weeks before?
Yeah. He called me when I was at work in the cafe,
-I didn't recognise his number.
-And what did he say?
-He wanted to meet.
-At the Pipes? That's a bit odd.
-It wasn't my idea.
-Would you not have suggested somewhere else?
He wasn't asking me out on a date!
Don't get smart with me, Liam. He was on the run,
he wanted to get the hell out of Dodge.
What are you saying? Are you saying you don't believe me?
I don't know what to believe, because you've sat across from me
and you've sworn that you knew nothing.
Do you know that you've put the Tyrell family through hell?
Maybe I should get that solicitor, because I...
And why would Brian want to meet you?
-You'd have to ask him.
-And why would you go?
You know why.
Rachel was still mooning over him. That's the night
we had the blazing row - I had to lock her up in her room.
-I remember that.
-She wanted to run away with him to France,
to start a family with the sick...
And this was all the night before the trial?
We both know she was going to stand up there and tell a pack of lies.
He was going to get away with everything.
That night, I had a chance to get rid of the bastard.
A second chance. This time, you better believe I took it.
I know you don't believe me.
I haven't said anything.
Look, is there someone you want me to call?
Someone you could speak to?
Yeah, Nikki, because my dad didn't do it, OK?
He just helped afterwards.
put him in the boot.
In the boot of the car.
I see. Yeah, well, I-I suppose you'd need some help with that.
And then he threw him in the ocean.
I didn't know what to do.
He was on the floor and he wasn't breathing.
-Just give me a second.
Do you know a Laser Byrne?
What, that scrote? Yeah, he's the biggest scumbag drug dealer
this side of the Liffey. What, you got some info?
No. No, I just heard some fellas talking about him in the pub.
Yeah, well, you tell those fellas to steer clear. You OK?
-I killed Brian McGonigle, OK?
They're interrogating my dad in there and it wasn't him, it was me.
Liam's inside there now... Oi, oi, oi, oi, oi!
Sorry about this. I thought we had a deal.
I want to make it official, and then you'll have to give me an interview.
Yeah, don't do this. You're not helping your dad.
I killed Brian McGonigle...
and I can prove it.
You think he's legit? Reid?
We need to check him out with psych first, sir.
So we got our man in the end, hm?
Despite charging the son of a sergeant.
We're not sure what's going on, sir.
We need to have a little chat.
-Well, I was just about to talk to Liam again.
-OK. It'll wait.
He was angry, but he's...
He's kind. He couldn't...
POOL BALLS CLACK
He couldn't kill anyone.
POOL BALLS CLACK
DOOR CLOSES Well, he did give Brian a battering.
For abusing my sister.
Let's just...wait until he comes out of the interview.
He promised me. He swore he would not touch that man.
You don't think he did it?
You know my dad - he wouldn't hurt a fly.
Unless it landed on one of his cherry muffins.
I'll try and find out what's going on in there, OK?
I want to speak to Nikki.
Yeah, she's a little tied up at the moment.
But I thought we could have a chat.
I am obliged to tell you
that this is not an official interview.
Just a chat.
You have to let her go.
Rachel is adamant that she has significant
information about this case.
She's lying. You know what she's like.
You know, I have no idea what she's like. She's your daughter.
She needs to see a doctor, OK?
You can't believe a word that comes out of her mouth.
See, what I don't understand is why you'd take the fall.
If Conor Tyrell did it...
He didn't. It was me.
She's saying that she killed him.
Last week, she reckoned she saw him on the street.
Said he wanted to buy her chips and take her bowling.
You asked me why - why I'm doing this now,
coming clean after all these months.
She has to accept what happened -
that he's dead - and move on.
WHISPERS: She's the reason I'm here.
Then why did you tell us that he confessed?
You said that you had evidence.
The wheel brace...the blood.
Conor made all this happen.
He ruined everything. He told Jules.
If he had...
If he had kept his mouth shut,
me and Brian would be together right now.
So she was covering for you?
No. No, she didn't know about me.
I just told her that now.
Conor Tyrell's in hospital...
because of me.
And maybe I could live with that...
God, that's very noble of you.
..but not what it's doing to my little girl.
I loved him.
So you smashed his skull in?
He said he didn't want me...
..and he was trying to walk away from me,
after everything that we'd been through.
And I couldn't let him.
So you're saying that she lied about Conor?
And, what, you just simply went along with it?
I'm not proud of myself.
Why would she land him in it?
They were mates.
I don't know.
That's what I'm saying -
I don't know what's going on inside her head any more.
-So what DID you use, if it wasn't a wheel brace?
..about this long.
Where'd you get it?
I found it on the floor.
Can you describe this...pipe?
It was a piece of metal, OK? I don't know. A pipe is a pipe.
About one inch in diameter, two foot-long,
a hook at the end.
It's part of an old boat of mine.
I had it out the back of the cafe for...
I don't even know why I kept it there.
I obviously realised it'd come in handy some day.
When I went to see McGonigle, I went prepared.
You realise, with the information you've just given me,
I now have no option but to charge you with murder?
Dad said she was making stuff up about Brian.
Johno's just having a chat with her.
They've been shutting me out for months.
I didn't think anything of it.
You think Rachel knew about your dad?
If she did...
..they've been lying to me every single day.
Everyone's been lying to me, Sean.
Why didn't you call me when Dad came in?
You didn't even take a statement.
Like I said, that was strictly off the record.
I want to speak to Nikki now.
Will you just shut up, Rachel?
-Not everything has to be about you.
Your dad's finished his interview.
Can I see him?
He said he didn't want to see anyone.
I don't care, I want to see him.
I want him to tell me face-to-face.
Look me in the eye and tell me what he's done.
The old lady not about?
Where's your little boyfriend?
Where's the pick-up, Laser?
This is it.
Once this is done, we're quits, yeah?
Just make sure the van's there.
Why can't he come home?
He said he'd rather stay at the station until...
-Can't face us?
-Why isn't anyone listening to me?
What's the matter, Rachel, no-one paying you enough attention?
Niamh, come on.
The world always has to revolve around you, doesn't it?
Well, congratulations, you've ruined Dad's life,
screwed up everything.
Hope he was worth it. Hope you two had a good time.
-She's the victim, Niamh.
She drove my dad to kill someone.
-SEAN: Come on, you don't mean that.
I mean every word. None of this would be happening
if you had just kept your knickers on.
Yeah, go on, run off.
Don't bother coming back.
So what time do the priests turn up?
Load the van, drive up the North.
I think we can manage that without a Hail Mary, can't we?
There's only one reason someone like Laser meets somewhere like this.
-He's got a thing for trees?
-Yeah, or shallow graves.
-I'm not joking.
And them Nordie cops will banjax the whole bleedin' thing up.
If we don't get this on time... If we screw it up...
-What, screw it up?
Make the delivery.
My van, my drugs.
Liam Reid, I am arresting you
on suspicion of the murder of Brian McGonigle
on the 12th of April 2016.
You're not obliged to say anything if you do not wish to do so.
-Anything that you do say may be written down
and may be used in evidence...
You haven't changed your mind, then?
Ripping Laser off? You've really lost it this time, man.
Way I see it, he's always going to be on our backs.
You want him breathing down our necks 24/7? Because I don't.
Telling us what to do.
I'm sick of this place.
And everyone in it.
Look, he wants us to deliver his drugs. We'll do that.
We're just going to take a little detour first.
A detour where?
All you need to know is we're going to be free. And rich.
Somewhere down the country.
Selling sniff to a load of culchies.
Their money's as good as anyone's.
How you doing?
You had us scared there for a while.
They say you'll be back on your feet in no time.
We have good news.
One more visitor allowed?
More the merrier.
Did you tell him yet?
Liam's confessed. To murdering Brian.
You're in the clear, son.
I don't have to go back?
Looks like we're lumbered with you again.
File's been sent to the DPP.
You know the routine. I'll get started on the paperwork after...
I just have to get something done first.
Anyway, I'll leave you to it.
Claire. Thanks... Really.
Hang on a sec.
I'm so sorry. I completely forgot.
A whole year.
You heard, then? It's great news.
-Good to see you, Nikki.
-Yeah, you, too.
To Katie and Luke.
Don't let them see you're hurting, son.
Your father's right. As far as they're concerned,
it's the best thing that could have happened to 'em.
She was never going to stay with her ma and da all her life, was she?
Always talking about leaving.
Bag permanently packed.
-I'd have gone somewhere sunnier myself.
-Like what? Spain?
We're all hurting, son.
Would you not think of yourself, son?
Going out on your own and spreading your own wings?
Why, you want me to sling me hook and all now, is it?
-Your father was just saying...
-Oh, no, fine, grand, I'll move out,
then. I'll move out, if that's what you want.
You relax and don't be so sensitive.
I'm just saying it might be good for you.
Get away from this kip. This environment.
Look who it is. Fun Boy Three.
Who runs most of the ridge now.
Where you going?
I'm going to introduce meself.
What? Said I needed a change, didn't you?
I know who you are.
Alice the Malice, you rearranged her face, I believe.
Yeah. That was...
I heard about that.
Can I help you?
Ah-ha-ha! The baby snatcher!
Well, get them in.
Was she any bother?
Went out like a light.
Liam Reid, eh?
Here. Have to look the part.
Are you still up for this?
Jesus. This isn't about your mother again, is it?
Look, anything happens you can have mine, all right?
You were all on for robbing her.
You've a real case of mammy-itis, don't you?
Look, your ma's your ma.
"Your ma's your ma." Are you coming?
This is not a good idea.
There's about seven pages in the Garda Handbook that say this
is a bad idea.
I know! Worried I might do something to him?
I'm worried about you.
Look, let me at least just run it past Nikki.
All above board, like?
So it was you.
I knew it!
My son almost died because of you.
He could have had brain damage. Did you know that?
Sniffing around him in hospital?
Why would you do that?
You knew us. Knew me.
Conor worked for you.
And still you did this.
We'd do anything for our kids, wouldn't we, Angela?
Brian McGonigle disgusted me.
You wanted to kill him. Make him suffer.
Any parent would.
I understand that, Liam.
But what you did to my family...
what you did to my son...
..I'll never forgive you.
DOOR SHUTS AND IS BOLTED
They found a body here, few weeks ago. Six feet under.
Put it away, will you?
Sorry, man. It's the nerves, they run right through me bladder.
Just be grateful it's not the other end, eh?
Cheers for that.
We should just go. He's not coming.
I need those drugs.
Michael, we'll be grand.
If you want to spend your life getting excited over
a win on the scratchcard, go. All right? I can do this myself.
And you promise we'll both get out of the magical forest alive?
I swear, all right?
And if not, I'll make sure you have a swanky funeral.
We're going to be rich. And my mum can stick her business.
Don't let me down, brother, all right?
Lads! Glad you could join us.
The van's parked over the other side.
Is that right? Give us the keys there, chief.
We can load it up.
Not so fast.
We're running late as it is.
That van's going to come in handy.
Hope you weren't too fond of it.
I'll go and have a little test drive. You stay here.
Hold on. Hold on. All right? We had a deal!
You really thought you could rip me off?
You know what to do.
Robbie. What are you doing, mate?
Don't you point that gun at me!
He was after me ma, Michael. You know he was!
What do you want me to do? The chap's a lunatic!
You going to use that?
Are you? Are you going to kill me?
Go on, go on, then.
I had no choice, Michael.
There's always a choice.
There's always a choice.
Me eye. Jesus, me eye!
You bleeding gimp!
He jumped me.
I tried shooting him, Laser.
Yeah? Well, try harder next time!
Kill him! Go on, kill him.
Hennessy! You're dead!
Not now, Sean. I'm a bit short-handed.
Niamh. Stop. Have you been home today? When did you last talk to Rachel?
Last night...we... Why?
It might be nothing.
But her bag's been found at a train station.
She's gone? Good.
Come on, Niamh, she could be anywhere.
You know the state she was in. You need to call her.
What you said to her...
I meant every word.
PHONE: You have one new voice message...
It's me, I'm sorry. I was out of order last night.
I shouldn't've said those things. Please.
I've got no-one else. Only you. It's... It's me and you, Ray.
Always has been.
You happy now, Mum?
All I asked for was a little hand-out.
A little leg-up. Get me over the hump, you know?
Now I'm just going to have to take it.
Michael, I'm sure we can sort things out.
They want to kill me. Do you understand?
I'm a dead man walking. Now, if that was David...
Please don't start this again.
Just tell me why.
What is it about me you can't stand?
Is it Dad? Huh?
You always did say I reminded you of him.
That I was the spit of him.
Maybe there's things you don't want to be reminded of.
The great Jack Hennessy.
What did he do that was so bad?
See, the thing is, I didn't choose for him to be my father.
So this is all your fault.
I'm going to need those passwords and combination.
All right? NOW!
Maybe she just needs some headspace.
Why couldn't I just keep my mouth shut?
You were in shock. You still are.
I blamed her.
If anything happens to her...
Where the hell have you been? I was worried sick about you!
I'm so sorry.
Say it isn't true.
Say it. Say it, please, Dad, please.
I have to go.
Glad that's over.
Ange, this whole thing has been a horrible mess.
You should get that.
What, now? OK, yeah, I'm on my way.
Yeah. Your old stomping ground. They're itching to have you back.
But I can't leave this place.
You need to finish your training.
-You're going to put me back into uniform?
-Look, let's face it,
a bit of time out of the spotlight will do you the power of good.
I mean, Conor Tyrell's wrongful arrest...
You're making me the fall guy in this, aren't you?
There is no fall guy.
OK, well, then let me stay, sir, please.
I am more use to you here than I will ever be in Donegal.
You cannot do this to me.
I have worked my ass off on this case, on every single case,
and I am really sorry that it didn't work out
the way the guys upstairs wanted to.
You start next week.
No. Just don't do anything, right? I'll be right over.
Joey, mind the place right?
Mammy probably needs her toenails painted, does she?
I tell ya, we should get an Old Firm game in.
Buy little Lukey a Celtic top. "Come on the hoops," eh?
Right, a jimmy riddle and I'll be back.
-Right. You busy?
Got a job...needs to be done.
Reckon it's right up your street.
I'll kill ya!
Just in case you're thinking of squealing, brother, yeah?
