The Young Offenders follows the coming of age adventures of lovable rogues Conor and Jock 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. The comedy series, which is a follow up to the feature film of the same name, is produced by Vico Films and stars Alex Murphy. Chris Walley and Hilary Rose.
In the Christmas special, it’s Christmas week, and the residents of the estate where Conor (Alex Murphy), Jock (Chris Walley) and Mairead (Hilary Rose) live have been fighting off an eviction from the council for over a month. The residents have created a barricade to show their determination that they won’t be moved to make way for the estate to be renovated, afraid that they might never get back into their homes if forced out. The situation has been getting national media coverage and everyone involved is on edge, including the police.
