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.
