Séamus

Mrs. Murphy

Mrs. Murphy - HOUSE-WIFE, SNUG and PERFECT MOTHER
Mrs. Murphy, the mother of Caelan shows the audience this idea of the "perfect mother". She acts as the contrast to Fintan's mum. She is very caring, loving and has a special spot in her heart for both Fintan and Séamus.

Fintan's Mum

Fintan's Mum - DRUNK, FRAIL and UNTIDY.
