Further details

You'd think growing up with three older sisters would teach a young lad a thing or two about the ways and wiles of girls. However, that's not the case for Martin as he struggles to find a window in which he can use the bathroom in the mornings thanks to Fidelma, Trisha and Sinead hogging it.

Using the battle for the bathroom as an opportunity to catch extra zeds, Martin falls foul of Sinead's pranks when she covers him in make-up while he's asleep. Unable to get to a mirror, Martin heads off to school unaware of his Boy George-esque look and, naturally, becomes the butt of the jokes.

If only there was a way for him to continue to maximise his sleeping time, check his face in the bathroom mirror and get to school promptly. So, while East and West Germany are reunited with the fall of the Berlin Wall, in Boyle, West Ireland, Martin Moone has his own wall to overcome - the one between his house and his school.
