Best of 2017- Portlaoise to be sole focus of three-part TV3 documentary series

In August, Motive TV were looking for people to film for their three-part documentary series following the lives of people living and working in Portlaoise. 

The documentary followed a number of locals in the Portlaoise area and will be aired next Spring. 


Portlaoise is set to become famous in a TV documentary series following life in and around the town over the next few months.

Motive TV, who produced the popular Bypassed programme for RTE One last year, is now looking to follow the journeys of some of the town’s most colourful or interesting characters.

Filming has just started on this three-part series to air on TV3 early next year.

“If you are a young person on a journey between now and February, we’d love to hear from you says producer Yvonne Kinsella.

“Maybe you have an interesting story to tell – are getting married before February, house hunting because of living in a crowded house, or unable to get on the housing ladder. Maybe you moved down from Dublin and commute back and forth every day or are battling a serious illness or have a child with a serious illness and have to travel a distance for medical treatment,

“Maybe you are trying to live the dream in a local band, are a budding country and western singer or hoping to make it in karaoke, have a love of drifting, are about to have a baby, are a carer or home help with an amazing story, are a teenager eager to prove his or herself or if you are the town’s most colourful character we’d love to hear from you.”

This programme is all about Portlaoise town and its surrounding parish and an opportunity to tell some amazing stories of life in the town, so if you want to get your story out there, then this could be the opportunity you were waiting for.
