It represents a return to a place where life is hard and the alcoholism of Malachy puts the family "on the dole." The family barely has food to eat, never has appropriate clothes to wear and cannot depend on family members. They are returning to a life Angela might have wanted to leave behind when she emigrate to the US to start with.
