Rachel Reid Goes Missing as The Plot Thickens on Red Rock

Thirty-Two episodes in and Red Rock continues to give it’s Soap Rivals a run for their money, proving that even the new kid on the block can keep its audience gripped with well rounded characters and throwing as many twists and turns our way as the veterans, with decades of experience, do.

Ros na Rún & The Demise of the Dastardly Doctor

It was only a matter of time before Karma caught up with soap villain extrordinaire, Dr Cathal Hennessy, who drew his last breath in this week’s outing to Ros na Rún.

A Trip To The Theatre 2 | Leper & Chip Review

Back in October I took a time out from badgering on about the soaps for a little bit and ventured out to Dublin’s cultural underground to go see the play Joe Prop, then wrote a quick write up for it here, and due to the popularity of that post, just like a greedy Hollywood Executive I’ve … Continue reading A Trip To The Theatre 2 | Leper & Chip Review

Got Milk?

After spending some time away from Ros na Rún, Cathal Hennessy has returned to the village, but to say he’s been on edge since his return would be somewhat of an understatement. The devious doctor has been going through quite the mental breakdown which has resulted in increasingly frequent bursts of rage. It all seemed … Continue reading Got Milk?
