From the mind of Kieran Prendiville (Badger, Roughnecks) and produced by the acclaimed BBC Studio, “Ballykissangel” captures the rolling hills and unique landscapes of rural Ireland.
Fresh from the bustling streets of Manchester, young and inexperienced Father Peter Clifford faces a whirlwind transition to Ballykissangel, a quintessential Irish village. Why would an English priest venture into the heart of Irish traditions and tales? As he delves deep into the rhythms of Irish village life, he discovers that it’s not just about adapting to a new pace. From mastering the challenges of country roads to diving into the intricacies of Irish village gossip — in Ballykissangel, every secret is a story waiting to unfold.
Will this city-bred priest manage to find his footing amidst the deeply rooted traditions, eccentric local characters, and captivating Irish folklore?
Watch for 22-year-old Colin Farrell starring as bad boy Danny Byrne in Seasons 2 through 4.
