Slow but realistic Modern Irish crime drama
18 May 2019 | by johnfp-fallonSee all my reviews

I wanted to like this more; but the pacing of the script and some wooden acting made it slightly difficult to endure. In its defense, it is accurate and highlights real issues faced by immigrants in modern Ireland. I hope it is a successful series.
