Waking Ned

Question: Two characters are named 'Mulligan' on the film: the absent priest (Father Mulligan, played by Larry Randall) and Pat Mulligan (played by Fintan McKeown), one of Maggie's suitors. Are they related? It's not very often that characters are named the same.

Question: Near the end of the film, when everyone is at the pub celebrating, there's a brief shot showing what appears to be an aged man dancing outdoors, in the dark. Is this Ned?

Answer: Yes.

Continuity mistake: Early in the film before he learns of Ned's death, Jackie says that there are 52 people living in the village, but once he learns of Ned's death, he still says that the winnings will be split into shares of 52.
