Cúlra / BackgroundLiam is twenty-nine years old and lives in the Donegal Gaeltacht. He’s from a mixed farming background but now works as a shop manager in Letterkenny. *Bairbre, who is twenty-eight, is originally from Cavan, but now lives in Dublin, where she works as a nurse. She met Liam while attending an Irish course in Donegal over five years ago. They dated for two-and-a-half years but split up when discovered that had gone back to her former fiancée behind his back. Their separation was not amicable. *

Liam and Bairbre recently met for the first time in three years. They had dinner together, went back to her place later on and ended up sleeping together. Bairbre has recently found out that she’s pregnant and she’s sure that Liam is the father, rather than her fiancé Noel. After much deliberation, she finally gets the courage to ring Liam. They arrange to meet in Dublin on a Friday night.
