The Young Offenders - Series One

The Young Offenders - Series One

The Young Offenders follows the coming of age adventures of lovable rogues Conor & Jock (Alex Murphy and Chris Walley, reprising their roles from the hit Irish feature film) as they navigate their awkward teenage years, hatching plans and adventures to help distract from their tough home lives and their inability to stay out of trouble at school. Conor's long suffering mother Mairead (Hilary Rose) tries to keep both her son and his best friend on the straight and narrow, with varying degrees of success.

The comedy series, created by Peter Foott, expands on characters already seen in the film as we watch the lads encountering love, loss, peer pressure, and morality, with each episode set in Cork, intertwining the tales with the city and characters the producers want to celebrate. The Young Offenders is foremost a comedy and is packed with laughter, but it's also tender with lots of heart.
