Add To Cart

Tony O’Neill is not having a good day. He is unemployed and broke, with his wife and child to support. Even worse, he’s living with his snooty mother-in-law. They don’t get on.

Bridie Feeney is very annoyed. She’s just had a row with her son-in-law and her daughter, Jean. Bitter words have been spoken. But she is not going to apologise…

Dave Cummins needs a fix … badly. It’s the worst day of his life. He knows he’s going to do something he swore he’d never do.

Sarah Collins is looking forward to a day in town. It’s been planned for ages … then the unthinkable happens.

It’s a day none of them will ever forget. But for Tony and Jean it’s the day they get a second chance.
