Ballykissangel

Synopsis

Fish out of water family audience series. A young priest - Father Peter Clifford (Stephen Tompkinson) - from a big city in England is sent to the rural Irish town of Ballykissangel. He quickly finds himself at odds with his superior, Father MacAnally (Niall Toibin) and local bar owner Assumpta Fitzgerald (Dervla Kirwan). He has to dodge romantic entanglements and learn that the locals are more complicated that they seem.

Other regular characters include Brian Quigley (Tony Doyle), Niamh Quigley (Tina Kellegher), Ambrose Egan (Peter Hanly), Siobhan Mehigan (Deidre Donnelly), Padraig O'Kelly (Peter Caffrey), Brendan Kearney (Gary Whelan) and Dr Michael Ryan (Bosco Hogan). 

Warm and funny, it was a huge hit for six season as BBC1's flagship Sunday night show.
