Created by Peter Foott, The Young Offenders tells the coming-of-age adventures of Conor (Alex Murphy) and Jock (Chris Walley) and their mother/guardian Mairéad (Hilary Rose) as she tries to keep them on the straight and narrow.

The first two series plus last year’s Christmas special now have more than 25 million requests on iPlayer.
