The Walshes

BBC Four sitcom about an Irish family. 3 episodes (1 series) in 2014. Stars Niall Gaffney, Philippa Dunne, Amy Stephenson, Rory Connolly and others.

Series 1, Episode 2 - Family Night

When Graham's landlord kicks him out, Ciara suggests that he move in with her, but his sudden insertion into the house upsets a delicate balance.

Further details

Ciara's boyfriend Graham moves into the already overcrowded Walsh household. Despite feeling the need to match Graham on an intellectual level, dad Tony is quite laid back about the situation. The same can't quite be said about Ciara's mammy, Carmel, though, who has concerns over the new sleeping arrangements in the house.

Meanwhile, Rory has bagged a new job at his dad's taxi company where he has caught the eye of fellow employee Collette.
