The comedic and lovable heroine, Agnes Browne, has a French lover, six children in their 20s - including one in prison - and a wee grandchild of her own. But the world is spinning fast for Agnes - especially considering that her lover wants her to become 'a sexual animal' and that her family's far-flung fortune is beyond her control. The members of the Browne family split up to make it in the world on their own until a tragedy brings the brood back together again - and love keeps them that way forever.
The Mammy is Agnes Browne - a widow struggling to raise seven children in a North Dublin neighborhood in the 1960s. Popular Irish comedian Brendan O'Carroll chronicles the comic misadventures of this large and lively family with raw humour and great affection. Forced to be mother, father, and referee to her battling clan, the ever-resourceful Agnes Browne occasionally finds a spare moment to trade gossip and quips with her best pal Marion Monks (alias 'The Kaiser') and even finds herself pursued by the amorous Frenchman who runs the local pizza parlor.
Agnes, the lovable and determined heroine, returns with her seven children - whom she affectionately calls 'the chisellers' - all struggling to make their way in the world with varying degrees of success. To make matters more difficult, as Agnes struggles along the bumpy road of parenting, she learns that the family is about to be forced out of their tenement home in the name of urban renewal. Pierre, Agnes' persistent suitor, is thankfully on hand to console her.
