It's a big moment in the life of young Martin Moone: his last week of primary school.

Further details

It's Martin last week of primary school. And he's pretty chuffed about it. "This is it, Sean Murphy, the last ever Monday morning. A new dawn is rising when boy becomes man." But before Martin can move on, Sean thinks he must leave a mark on the school to ensure no one forgets his legacy. Enter Martin Mayhem. Although in the face of chaos, it appears that Marty may not be a natural anarchist after all.

Meanwhile, Debra and Liam embark on a mission to stop Sinead from finishing the year at the top of her class to avoid sending her on a Girl Guide Jamboree. However, they soon have bigger things to worry about when Fidelma and Dessie, complete with his "Daniel O'Donnell hair and creepy eyes", drop a bombshell.
