On the left sideBThe story takes place in Conn -- a town in western Ireland - during the 1980s Conn is a rather conservative town with many farmers and shop owners All of the conservatives are sitting on the right side during Sunday Mass while the principal character and nine other sinners are sitting on the left side It is easy to see which part of the congregation Farther ORourke likes most since electric heaters have been installed in the right side of the church Farther ORourke is the one person who decides what should be done with the money collected for the church Through the shop owners in Conn he squeezes a lot of money out of the inhabitants Somehow paying every time you go shopping has become an unwritten law The narrator has little confidence in Farther ORourke since Farther ORourke had put her down in front of the whole towns population when she was pregnant Though she had told him during a confession he had spread the news so to speak This shows us how he does not care about his job The only thing he is interested in is how he wants things to be Though Philomena OHalloran does a good job he cannot forgive her having a baby by native African This could be taken as a sign of racism from Farther ORourkes side The only ones who seem to tolerate this are the sinners on the left side of the left side After it has been revealed that Friday Mkete is the son of Philomena OHalloran it is only the people sitting on the left side who keep collecting money for the Philomena mission To me this looks as they are the only good-hearted people and that it is the people on the right side who are the actual sinners The people sitting on the right side are simply doing what they are told to by Farther ORourke
