Bray People - - CHRISTMAS -

It’s go­ing to be Ni­amh’s first Christ­mas with Michael, but in­stead of plan­ning a ro­man­tic ex­trav­a­ganza, there’s a part of her that wishes she was spend­ing it with the kids, es­pe­cially after she hears how ex­cited Ruth is about the big day. Luck­ily, her fes­tive wish is (par­tially) granted by Rachel, who in­vites her over for Christ­mas morn­ing, and Michael raises no ob­jec­tions, promis­ing they’ll make the most of their Christ­mas Eve to­gether in­stead. How­ever, Ni­amh doesn’t count on the fact that Paul will also be spend­ing De­cem­ber 24th in some­one else’s company, as a shaken Ni­cola turns up on his doorstep, claim­ing that some­one stole all her be­long­ings at the air­port and she had nowhere else to go. Ni­amh is shocked when she ar­rives at chez Bren­nan to find another woman has taken over the kitchen, but even the rev­e­la­tion that Ni­cola wasn’t been en­tirely hon­est about how she ended up there isn’t enough to dis­lodge her. Else­where, Mondo leaves it un­til Christ­mas Eve to get Juliet a present, and only man­ages to buy her a knock-off cam­era. Dee­gan steps in to save the day, but the young­ster still faces a dis­ap­point­ment as her dad makes plans to leave for Las Ve­gas. Cass re­alises that Charlie has been ly­ing about his Christ­mas plans and in­tends to spend the day alone, but he can’t do any­thing to change his friend’s mind. How­ever, a present from Margie and an en­counter with Zoe may get him into the fes­tive spirit. Pete at­tempts to jug­gle two fam­i­lies – and two full turkey din­ners – while Damien sym­pa­thises with Caoimhe as she faces the prospect of not see­ing her loved ones. There’s shock­ing news about Neil, while Dolores feels un­able to de­liver her own bomb­shell, and Kerri-Ann and Decco spend a sur­pris­ingly happy day in A&E.
