  • Achoimre

    On inheriting land and money, sheepish County Down bachelor Peter O'Hare becomes the target of two different families seeking to make good matches for their respective daughters. With his housekeeper Widow Dougherty turning advisor, but also seeking a proposal for herself, Peter is taken on a whirlwind of offer, counter-offer and refusal. Eventually, the situation proves so confusing that he slips away to emigrate to America, only announcing the sale of his farm and escape to the village by telegram.
