Christmas Special - The Last Round

Tuesday 25 December 2007 9.40pm

When Jacksie nails a 'For Sale' sign to the outside of the bar, it looks set to be a cruel Yule for Dan and his drinking buddies. As they contemplate a future without their beloved boozer, Jacksie reveals a dramatic secret.  Meanwhile the regulars reminisce, recalling a famous pub quiz victory, and the time that Timmy was taught a difficult science lesson. When it looks like things couldn't get any worse, Bunty Clarke and the Diehards fail to show for Jacksie's closing down concert. Luckily, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a little seasonal miracle, so after Jacksie reveals his true intentions, some surprise celebrity guests show up to ensure a Rock 'n' Roll Christmas for the inhabitants of Ireland's favourite village.

A visit to the madcap village of Killinaskully will no doubt have you in stitches.  Old favourites such as Dan Clancy, Timmy Higgins, Jacksie Walsh and Pa Connors have once again been brought to life by the writing team of comic Pat Shortt and Limerick writer, Mick Finn. Limerick native, Eugene O'Connor has also returned for a third series in the director's chair.
