Ireland and the world couldn’t get enough of Cork’s two young offenders, Jock and Conor, when they went off to find adventure and cocaine on the Wild Atlantic Way back in 2016. So it was a treat to hear that the duo had found themselves a home on the small screen with RTÉ. With less cocaine and more girls, bikes and fantastic one-liners, it’s fair to say we’re in for a treat.
A quick chat with Chris Walley (Jock) and Alex Murphy (Conor) ahead of the episode airing showed a bit more behind the rat moustaches and stench of masculinity. “Young lads love Conor and Jock,” Murphy told Hot Press. “On set, they prefer Jock - ‘cos Jock’s the cool one, he’s the hard one. Conor shows his emotional side so they don’t like me very much - which is a shame!”
Despite the film being released in 2016, reassuming their roles was as easy as throwing on a jacket, Walley explains. “Once you get the haircut and the moustache and put the tracksuit back on - you just can’t help but feel that character again.”
