Paddy comes from many generations of farmers, and after raising his own family on the farm, Paddy hoped to pass on his farming passion to the next generation. His kids, on the other hand, love their Da very much but couldn’t wait to get away from his, ahem, meticulous farming practices! Enter: Fitzy, a family friend of Paddy and his wife Mary’s who the couple hired as a farmhand. Despite Fitzy’s (almost over) eagerness to learn, goofy jokes and lack of experience, aul Paddy has developed a soft spot for Fitzy, being the same age as his kids an’ all. On any given day, Paddy can be found guiding Fitzy through the importance of getting things right for the chickens—from the right feed to keep them sásta and healthy to the right temperature to keep them comfortable and warm—and everything in between. Of course, he likes things just right for Fitzy too, always making sure there’s an extra place set for Fitzy ‘round the dinner table after a productive day’s work.
