    Me and Mine tells the story of an Irish immigrant family who left rural Ireland in the 1950s in the hope of finding work and a better way of life in England. But home is never far away as aunts ferry over suitcases dripping with blood from the Irish boat train because English meat is 'dirt' or smuggle poteen disguised as holy water in Virgin Mary shaped bottles, and gossip is delivered weekly in the form of the local county paper.
