KILLALOE will come under a national spotlight from this Sunday as the setting for a new RTÉ drama.

‘Blackshore’ is the latest series from the creators of Smother, the hit RTÉ drama which proved to be a success for Lahinch and parts of North-West Clare.

Writer Kate O’Riordan and director Daithí Keane have once again teamed up but this time have headed to East Clare for a new six-part Irish drama that begins on RTÉ One this Sunday night.

Lisa Dwan is in the lead role as DI Fia Lucey, a determined detective haunted by her tragic past when her entire family was wiped out in a tragedy at the hands of her father.

Recently banished from her high stakes position due to allegations of undue force, Fia is tasked with investigating the case of a missing woman from her hometown, Blackwater.

What begins as a missing persons’ enquiry soon becomes a larger mystery that engulfs the entire community and may uncover devastating revelations about DI Lucey’s own tragic family history.

Blackwater is a town still processing the unwelcome attention brought by DI Lucey’s family tragedy, is now prosperous and successful but remains steeped in its own secrets and lies.

Fia finds herself up against some of the most prominent and powerful personalities in the town as she comes to discover that this case may lead her back to her most personal and intimate family history.

Starring alongside Lisa in the cast are Rory Keenan (The Guard, Peaky Blinders), Amy DeBhrún (Line of Duty and Vikings) and Aidan McArdle (Deadly Cuts, Mr Selfridge) along with Stanley Townsend and Andrew Bennett.
