Everybody’s talking about… #Ireland’s Oyster Clan

TV3 have announced a new show based around the antics of a family on the Cooley Peninsula.

Our favourite lines from the press release:

Each week, we follow Ireland’s very own Duck Dynasty, the colourful Louet-Feisser family, Kian, Charm, Mary, Gary, Darren and their children, friends and employees….

Duck Dynasty! Charm!

Mary, Kian’s wife, is committed to getting Irish people eating oysters, and as she says with a cheeky smile “they’re an aphrodisiac”.


When the tide is out the men scramble their pimped up tractors to turn or harvest the oysters. When the tide comes in, it’s time to fight, hunt, drink, socialise or compete in an array of weird and wonderful activities – from tractor racing to oyster baking, ghost busting to stand-up comedy.

“Pimped up tractors”. Set the Skybox.
