Kathleen Mooney - town eccentric and pagan, housekeeper for Father Fitzgerald. Kooky, mystical, and capable of issuing curses, though harmless.
Fiona Finn - Flanagan’s long-suffering fiancé of thirty years, proper and correct and Catholic, with a simmering, frustrated sensuality that occasionally comes to the surface.
Mother Flanagan - Flanagan’s mother – cantankerous and shrewd, her Gaelic accent is so thick it is now only gibberish. (Gender flexible – also plays a leprechaun)
Father Fitzgerald - parish priest who takes his holy responsibility seriously, but likes to gamble and can be found in the pub knocking back a couple with Brian.
Brian Ballybunion - Flanagan’s best friend and drinking buddy since childhood. Himself a weaver of tales, he is constantly devising plans to make money without actual employment.
Mickey Finn - County Sligo’s best-known writer and younger brother of Flanagan’s fiancé, Fiona Finn.
Mayor Martin O’Doul - Grapplin’s only elected official and bartender, perpetual politician and glad-handing host.
Flanagan - our protagonist, an unusual, fascinating, mythic man who, for story purposes, can be anyone we need him to be.
