In what will be a first for Fair City, and indeed any soap, they will have an all-female episode to celebrate International Women's Day this Wednesday, March 8th.
It will see the women of Carrigstown end up at a spontaneous lock-in, in McCoy’s pub, where it's said: "some feuds will be laid to rest, while others will reach new heights".
Speaking about the all-female Fair City, Brigie deCourcy, Executive Producer said: "We’re so excited to air this very special all-female episode on Wednesday night which is a first for an Irish soap. Strong women have always been at the heart of Fair City, so we decided what better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than putting our Carrigstown ladies out front and centre in their very own episode. The programme has been months in the making, planning the storylines well in advance to ensure that all these characters collide on the same day and I really hope the audience at home will enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it."
The half-hour episode will see Niamh finally draw a line a line under Hayley’s affair with Paul. However, Carol is left shocked as she finds out it is Hayley who Paul has been playing away with. Jane and Orla continue to battle it out over Dermot’s money after it goes missing, and all eyes are on Heather when, after sneaking out of the house, she arrives into the pub, carrying the missing handbag. Also in the episode, Debbie and Rose finally reach a truce and together reminisce about Katy and light a candle in her honour. If only they knew how close she was...
Catch the episode this Wednesday, March 8th on RTE1 at 8pm.
