One of the TV hits of the past year returns with a seasonal special as thousands of Irish travellers descend upon the town of Rathkeale in Limerick for the traditional wedding season.
Spectacular dresses abound, skimpily clad bridesmaids shiver in subzero temperatures, and pumpkin coaches hover while grooms work up courage in the pub.
Meanwhile caravan site manager Paddy Doherty and his wife Roseanne spend a first Christmas alone in Salford, and a First Holy Communion ceremony in Cork offers yet another opportunity to dress up.
