Heartbreak Hotel

Maia Dunphy is set to host this brand new format which sees heartbroken singles gather at a weekend retreat to find love, friendship, and maybe more. They explore why things went wrong with their exes and ‘confront the demons of their past’. Sounds juicy.

David McWilliams, Back to the Future

This is a one-off examination of the property bubble, and if we’re heading to another one. Bound to be a big talking point.

The Bailout

This is a new two-part drama that tells the story of Ireland’s government as they attempt to avoid handing over our economy to outsiders. A depressing watch, we’re sure.

Mammy Guilt

Karen Koster shows us what it’s like to be a working mother, balancing work, being a mother, and er, guilt.

Ireland’s Youngest Grandparents

This is a two-part documentary that will examine young grandparents all over Ireland who had their kids follow their footsteps.
