Frank Gallagher tends to spend every penny he can muster at the bar. If you could take just a portion of that money and give it to his daughter Fiona, what would you tell her to do with it? Take a long, much needed vacation? Invest in a new house? Feed the family for a year?
I think I would have tell Fiona to take care of the family the best she could with that money. Get food, clothes, and other necessities for the children. I know when my family struggles with finances, it is super stressful. I am sure if she could just have the money he wastes at the bar she would be so much less stressed about the situation. Actually, I don't know first hand how it is, but my mom and my fiancee both were raised by alcoholic fathers and know the routine all too well.
