2013-04-02 16:10 : By Gearóid Gilmore
The second series of the Irish co-production ‘Ripper Street’ will begin shooting in Dublin later this month.

The hit TV series, which is aired by the BBC, will return to filming in the Clancy Barracks in Dublin later this month and is set to continue filming until August 31st.

The first series was set in London’s East End in Whitechapel in the year 1889; six months after the infamous Jack the Ripper murders. When more women are murdered on the streets of Whitechapel, Detective Inspector Edmund Reid (played by Matthew Macfadyen), Detective Sergeant Bennett Drake (Jerome Flynn), and US Army Captain Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg) begin to investigate the killings. Fears that Jack the Ripper has returned begin to surface in the disadvantaged district.

The first series also contained many Irish talents working together; including Monaghan actress Charlene McKenna, producer Ed Guiney, make-up artists Sharon Doyle and Eileen Buggy (who both won an IFTA at this year’s ceremony for their efforts), production designer Mark Geraghty (who also won an IFTA at this year’s ceremony), costume designer Lorna Marie Mugan, and editor Helen Chapman.

Another Irish co-production, ‘Quirke’, starring Gabriel Byrne and set for release in September, was also filmed at the Clancy Barracks in Dublin earlier this year. The second series of ‘Ripper Street’ will commence filming on April 29th and will air on BBC in 2014.
