Martin and Padraic are building a raft. It’s their most exciting construction project yet and has almost nothing to do with being forced to read ‘Huckleberry Finn’ at school. Their initial plan is to sail it into town on a hot, sunny day and eat ice-creams on it and let all their friends swim off it and be the most popular lads in town. But by the time the raft is finished it’s almost Halloween and it’s bloody freezing, so they make a new plan.
Martin sees ‘The Greatest thing his little eyes have ever witnessed’ and with money tight in the Moone household he sets to work on the golf course. An old rivalry rears it’s head and Liam challenges his nemesis to a ‘Handball duel’.
It’s Fidelma’s hen do and Dessie’s stag. The Moone’s get new neighbours.
It’s Fidelma and Dessie’s wedding. Martin has to say a heartbreaking goodbye.
