Our Friend in Ireland: Agnes Cogan

Agnes Cogan

The past six months have been a period like no other in Ireland. Our lockdown has been followed by a partial lifting of restrictions that has us bobbing up and down between level two and level three of the pandemic regulations.

The good news is that production has resumed, and it is slightly surreal that Matt Damon, star of Contagion, a spooky thriller about a deadly virus and a global panic, has been spotted pottering about in Dalkey, a small seaside town south of Dublin, where he chose to spend lockdown.

Based on the novel by William Landay, the series was created and written by Mark Bomback.

The series is set in small Massachusetts town, and focuses on assistant district attorney Andy Barber (Chris Evans), whose life is thrown into disarray when his 14-year-old son Jacob (Jaeden Martell) is accused of murdering another child from his class.

The crime has consequences for the whole town and witnesses who claim Jacob did it say he looked “smug and remorseless”.
