There's a sad goodbye and new arrivals in Ballykissangel: Quigley, the irrepressible entrepreneur has departed suddenly, but Australian priest, Father Vincent Sheahan, has joined the fold and is soon learning the ways of the villagers. From Dermot's online confessional (which is promptly stopped from a mysterious email from God!) to a surprise takeover at the pub, and further shenanigans with Liam and Donal, there's every reason to return to the idyllic village.]]>

I am so disappointed with the writing and newer characters this season. If it weren't for Liam and Donal I would think it was a different show. Not just that the characters are different, but the writing seems to have lost the spark that made this show special. Even a new, handsome Aussie priest couldn't help it. That's probably why there are only 8 episodes to Season 6. Like an old, sick horse, someone did the humane thing and put it out of it's misery.
I belatedly mourn the passing of Tony Doyle and Birdy Sweeny and the death of a great piece of television history. But I am so grateful I found it and was able to enjoy it's wonderful 5 year run.
In the end I'm very happy that I decided to watch season 6 as I enjoyed it very much. The new curate, Father Vincent is a great character. Unlike his predecessors , Peter and Aidan, he is not intimidated by Father Mac and won't be bullied by the older priest. He even stands up to the bishop who is far worse that Father Mac. Father Vincent has his shortcomings, which makes him believable, but he is a good central character for the show.
They did a good job of giving the Brian Quigley character a sendoff, in spite of the death of actor Tony Doyle. This was an improvement over the way the Eamonn character was quickly written out of the show when actor Birdy Sweeney passed away.
Some new characters, especially Avril, are interesting and add to the series. On the other had, Louie, who speaks with an unintelligible accent, even Brendan can't understand him, is very annoying.
There is no "final episode" which happens in many other series. Former cast members do not make one final appearance nor do dead characters appear in people's dreams. The last scene, which takes place in Fitzgerald's, was a perfect way to end the series. It was as if there are more stories to be told.
