6 vintage Fair City stars… where are they now?

Remember Kay McCoy? And Jimmy Doyle? Never forget.

EARLIER THIS WEEK a strangely familiar face popped up in the new Renault commercial.

“Where do we know this lad from?” we pondered.

Here at Towers we racked our brains:

He was a policeman in Fair City I do believe.
Are we mixing him up with this guy?
Don’t think he was a policeman, he worked in the little computer company they ran in somone’s living room I think.


Now that we have David Heap – aka Donal Maher from Fair City – placed, it’s time to have a nose around for some more of Carrigstown’s finest who’ve moved on to greener pastures:

6 vintage Fair City stars… where are they now?
1 / 7
  • Donal Maher

  • Kay McCoy

  • Hughie Phelan

  • Nicola Prendergast

  • Pizza Action

  • Barry O'Hanlon

  • Jimmy Doyle

    The second oldest of the Doyle children (the Doyle's owned the shop, remember?), Jimmy was a mechanic who first married Dolores Molloy's daughter Lorraine. When she died he had an affair with Ali Foley which broke up his second marriage to Robin. Then he moved to Australia, joining his brother Darren and youngest sister Louise. Nowadays that actor David Mitchell lives in America. In 2005 he won RTÉ's Your a Star Charity Special. Image: RTÉ
