FILM SET ON CAPEL STREET [THEY MAY BE ACTORS NOT POLICE]-127361
Note: What first caught my attention was the CAFE sign in the Toplook Window but if you read what is under the business name it reads as follows “skin and laser clinic”. OK, I did notice what I thought was an accident scene before I noticed the sign but when you look through a telephoto lens certain features grab your attention.
Where I live frequently hosts film crews and today was one of those days. I could not determine if the people in yellow jackets were police [Garda], actors or police who were double-jobbing as actors.
I was told that they were shooting a scene for Red Rock [I do not know if that was true]. I have never seen the programme but I believe that it is supposed to be excellent.
Red Rock is an Irish Drama set in a fictional seaside town near Dublin. It was first shown on TV3 on 7 January 2015, and is produced by Element Pictures and Company Pictures.
The show is based around Red Rock's local Garda Station. It also features two feuding families, the Kielys and the Hennessys, whose battles often involve them with the Gardaí. All episodes are filmed on location or in studios based at the old John Player Factory in Dublin. The show received eight nominations and won three awards, including Best Soap, at its very first IFTA awards in 2015.
It debuted on BBC One on 11 July 2016. Following the final episode of Series 1 on BBC One on September 2 2016, It has now been announced that Series 2 will air on BBC One in summer 2017.
