The first episode investigates the ancestry of the Irish folk singer Damien Dempsey, taking him as far away as Massachusetts and revealing revolutionary links that saw his ancestor incarcerated alongside Daniel O'Connell.

Speaking to IFTN, director of the first episode, Luke McManus said: "Working with Damo on ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ was an absolute pleasure. As his family history was revealed, he felt every moment as if they had happened yesterday. Damo's family journey is like his music - packed with heart, melancholy and a fierce integrity."
