Stars of the series, Alex Murphy, Hilary Rose, Linda Walsh, Dominic MacHale, Jennifer Barry and Demi Isaac Oviawe joined more of the cast and crew, the Lord Mayor of Cork Cllr Tony Fitzgerald and fans of all ages to toast the huge success of the series before viewing the final episode - five days before it will air on Irish television.
“We can’t get over the success of the show, to get commissioned for the second series as well is brilliant and we’re all delighted,” added the Douglas native.
At the event Lord Mayor of Cork Cllr Tony Fitzgerald spoke of the role Cork played in both the Young Offenders movie and TV series.
“The English Market is a unique venue like no other, we welcome visitors from all walks of life from the queen of England to The Young Offenders and so it was the perfect fit for the series,” said Pat O’Connell, an English market trader who features in cameos in the show.
Creator of The Young Offenders, Peter Foott thanked the English Market for allowing them to take over and film some of their best scenes.
