Fidelma and Dessie's big day is just a week away and the Moone household is gripped by wedding fever. Until, that is, it's overshadowed by travellers moving into the field nextdoor. Liam and Debra are definitely, totally fine about their new neighbours, they're not worried at all, but they might move some things from the garden into the house - just so they don't rust, you understand.

Martin is intrigued by the travellers, particularly new classmate Majella. As the two become a little bit more than friends, Martin reaches an important rite of passage in any young man's life.

Meanwhile, when Dessie asks Father Linehan to be his best man, the priest organises a stag do complete with mass and Bible drinking games that soon get out of hand.
