Full name Margaret Flaherty, Pegeen Mike is the 20-year-old daughter of Michael James. She is engaged to Shawn Keogh at the top of the play, and later engaged to Christy for a short period. Though she in many ways transcends the limitations of County Mayo through her shrewd intelligence, feisty personality, and notable beauty, she nevertheless proves incapable of leaving Mayo behind when she repudiates Christy.
