RTÉ bosses have confirmed that Clare based drama Smother will have a third series.

Season two of the popular drama starring Dervla Kirwan concluded on Sunday night in the coveted RTÉ ONE slot previously held by shows such as Love/Hate, RAW, Single-Handed and Kin.

Filming for the third series is to commence in Co Clare shortly, RTÉ have confirmed with this planned to air in early 2023.

Moy House is the home of the Ahern family in the show which was filmed across North-West Clare with Lahinch, Fanore, Liscannor, Spanish Point and the Burren primary locations featured throughout the show.

Funded by Fís Éireann / Screen Ireland and the WRAP Fund and with BBC Studios distributing the project internationally, Smother, has raised the profile of filming in the Mid-West region providing employment and investment in the local economy. Produced by Treasure Entertainment, the show has also boosted local talent with trainees assisting in its production.

Since its inception, Smother has been supported by the Clare Arts Office.

“It has also provided us with a valuable opportunity to deepen our engagement and further our partnership with regional film supports such as WRAP and Film in Limerick,” Siobhán added.
