Everyone's really excited when Sister Michael announces the school trip this year is to Paris. Erin's keen to cultivate her writing, Clare and James want to improve their French, Orla thinks she's going to meet Nicole and Papa from the Renault Clio adverts and Michelle wants to ride a French fella. But they don't bank on the fact that the trip costs £375 - each. Back at the Quinn house Uncle Colm, Granda Joe's extremely boring brother, is visiting and the whole family are losing the will to live.
