Dermot is in Timahoe, Portlaoise with Dolores and Donal O'Connell. Their five children are all grown-up but still live in the area. Dolores loves having them all home regularly for big family get-togethers. However, their children now have partners and there's five grandchildren so when everyone is back at home it's totally crammed. The men end up congregating in the living room, the women and children in the kitchen-diner and Dolores gets stuck cooking in a back kitchen cut off from everyone.
