Peatsaí Ó Riain

Actor: Máirtín Jaimsie

Family & Relationships: Mo Gilmartin (grand-niece), Mack Ó Riain (nephew), Úna Ní Riain (niece).

Peatsaí left Conamara years ago to emigrate to America, where he worked illegally for twenty years. He came back to Ireland because of a condition in his father’s will that stated that his sons had to be in Ireland to inherit any money or land. He had a younger brother, Mack’s father, who he didn’t get on well with.

Peatsaí and Tadhg don’t have the best relationship and often bicker when they’re together.
