The Young Offenders Is Getting A Christmas Special


Share this article


Good news for fans of The Young Offenders as the hilarious Cork duo are getting a Christmas special. 
 
Alex Murphy, Chris Walley and Hilary Rose will all return for the episode, and will be joined by special guest Robert Sheehan. 
 
The story is set in the midst of a protest over eviction in Conor's estate. 
 
It's Christmas week, and the residents of the estate where Conor (Alex Murphy), Jock (Chris Walley) and Mairead (Hilary Rose) live have been fighting off an eviction from the council for over a month.  The residents have created a barricade to show their determination that they won't be moved to make way for the estate to be renovated.
 
While all this is happening, Mairead has been sick for weeks and has to be taken to hospital.   The situation proves to be more serious than thought and not knowing how to help, the lads ask Mairead if there's anything they can get her.  The two friends set off on a chaotic adventure to try make her wish come true and in the process find out something about themselves and the value of empathy.
 
An exact air date has yet to be announced.
