It has been an epic year for Fair City with some of the biggest, tensest and thrilling storylines for the fair folk in Carrigstown. To cap it off, RTÉ Player has curated a very special collection of the most memorable scenes of 2016 while also resurrecting the ghosts of Christmas past as we journey back to the 1990 Fair City Christmas special for a serving of triple denim, cassette tapes and the ‘Real McCoys’.
From weddings to affairs, kidnappings to charismatic characters, Fair City’s Bob Charles played by actor Bryan Murray, relives the top storylines of 2016, giving fans the inside track on the biggest moments in Fair City this year. Remember Heather (Una Kavanagh)? How could you forget? Her controversial character wreaked havoc as she came between Shane (Anthony Delaney) and Ama (Donna Anita Nikolaisen), not to mention her bizarre behaviour in ‘caring’ for her daughter, Ellie (Susie Power).
Gain ‘Access All Areas’ with exclusive ‘Behind the Scenes’ interviews and footage from the cast and crew of Fair City. Cast your mind back to not only the Wedding of the Year … but the DOUBLE Wedding of the year! With couples Kerri-Ann (Jenny Dixon) and Decco (David O’Sullivan) and Carol (Aisling O’Neill) and Robbie (Karl Shiels) venturing down the aisle, RTÉ Player was granted ‘Access All Areas’ to film some exclusive ‘Behind the Scenes’ footage and have a chat to all involved in the making of this epic episode! Or get the low-down from Pierce (Daryl McCormack) and Rachel (Niamh Quirke) as they chat about their on-screen relationship, chemistry and how to look cool with a motorbike when you have no clue how to drive one….
Wait for it… That’s not all… In the year of Mary Robinson’s Presidential Inauguration and Packie Bonner’s infamous save in Italia ’90, it was a Royal Doyle Christmas in Carrigstown as Bela (Jim Bartley), Rita (Jean Costello) and the kids had a terribly tense time of it. Prepare yourself for a serious dose of nostalgia in the Fair City Christmas Special from 26 years ago!
