The main cast includes Adam Goodwin (My Boy Jack, The Tudors), Karl Shiels (Eden, Intermission), Mary Murray (The Magdalene Sisters, Adam and Paul), Eamonn Hunt (The Running Mate), Tim Ruddy (Gods and Generals), Julie Hale (Ash Wednesday), Sean McDonagh (Kisses), Donal Gray (Omagh), Rory Mullen (Hunger) and Daniel Wu (Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom).
