Great Comedy drama set in the beautiful city of Cork

Meet Conor and Jock, the delinquent stars of The Young Offenders film, are back on our screens – TV screens this time (RTÉ2, Thursdays, 9.30pm).

Written by Irish writer/director Peter Foott, the film has made a smooth transition from the big to the small screen. The characters and the tone and the Cork charm are just as clear in the TV show as in the film.

The two lovable offenders, Jock and Conor, who are supposed to be attending school, spend most of their time carrying out petty crime.

The rest of the cast including, the garda sergeant, Conor’s mum, the school principal, all add to the fun and to some moving exchanges between the characters.

The BBC have already commissioned a second series.

St. Patrick’s Day in Cork!

ACET student Andrea Sebé  Fernández gives an account of St. Patrick’s festivities that took place recently in the city.

“On 17th March came the long awaited day for everyone. In the morning everybody was in the parade, in Saint Patrick Street. The streets were packed with thousands of people all so excited. Families, locals and tourists like us all together to celebrate a massive cultural event.

There was music, many people with green customs and lots of good feelings.When the parade was over people some people decided to return home, and then others went to the pubs to listen live Irish music. It is a very busy evening in the city, maybe the busiest night of the whole year. If you wanted you could eat something in the many posts that had restaurants on the street to sell food”.
