Episode Summary

For generations, traveller celebrations have been a family affair. Though the traditional way of life has declined in recent years, the large tight-knit family unit still lies at the heart of the traveller community. In this episode we meet the Mcfadyens, a large Irish traveller family in the midst of a series of celebrations. The family is excited about the release of their father Chris from prison, who they plan to pick up in a stretch limousine. We catch up with Josie Mcfadyen and her husband Swanley who first appeared in the last series, when Josie waded down the aisle in her enormous front-split wedding dress. Recently convicted Josie is planning the Christening of her 6 month old daughter, but still finds the time to decorate her electronic tag with bling. We meet Josie's sister, Barbara, who is about to become engaged to her boyfriend Malachy. But Malachy must first make the daunting move of asking permission from Barbara's father. We also catch up with 15 year old Cheyenne who we last saw at a wedding being 'grabbed' by Josie's brother John. In the fast-track traveller style, Cheyenne and cage-fighter John are now engaged to be married. Soon to be 16, Cheyenne has the daunting task of organizing her wedding on her own as she deals with the recent death of her mother.moreless
