It's the 12th of July and the Derry Girls are leaving town. Pauline Jeanie and Marie Louise talk about the history of the 12th, being waved at by the big man off the telly and why a fortune teller had all the answers - maybe. They advise on taking the right purse and why packing a fruit cake in your hand luggage isn't recommended. They're having a whale of a time on the River Foyle, hitchhiking across the border and discussing the correct etiquette when invited to tea with paramilitaries.
