Six part comedy-drama series for TG4.
Episode 1, Wednesday 16th January at 10pm
Maeve Kelly Clarke is cut from blue-chip, Irish political stock. Her father, her hero, was a TD and she’s on her way to represent Ireland in Brussels. Maeve inherited Daddy’s political ambition, ruthlessness and cunning and she’s going to need all of it when she lands in EU Headquarters.
With an eccentric and increasingly luckless team surrounding her, Maeve’s determination to prove herself to her European colleagues, as well as her Irish detractors, suffers repeated setbacks. Low-cost Irish airline, Doyleair, prove to be very high-stress. Maeve is made to suffer for an Irish artist’s lefty political tantrums. Belligerent German pensioners, a nosy documentary crew and a Eurovision-loving Irish Taoiseach all threaten to derail Maeve’s Euro’ experiment.
And if that isn’t enough, Maeve’s Chef De Cabinet, Ciaran MacIonraic, brings his own unique brand of chaos and disorder.
But Maeve Kelly Clarke didn’t get where she is today for no reason. Like her father, Maeve’s a fighter and if anyone’s going to be honorary mother to 500million Europeans, it’s this unique Irish woman.
