Further details

After the disastrous encounter at the Walsh family barbecue, Conor and Jock have one last chance to make Linda and Siobhán fall for them.

They suggest to both girls that they should spend one full day with them, all four together, so the girls can see just what they're missing out on. If they don't want to hang out with them after this day, then the lads will give up pursuing them.

The girls, sensing an opportunity to rid themselves of the lads once and for all, agree to the suggestion. A sick day from school is the only way they can do this, leading to various difficulties for all four.

Meanwhile, Mairead has decided to invite a 'friend' over for dinner, which doesn't go down well with Conor.
