It has been an epic year for Fair City with some of the biggest, tensest and thrilling storylines for the fair folk in Carrigstown.
Last night saw the first of the the soap’s first ever two-hander episode and let’s just say it was an explosive one.
It all began when Paul confronted Niamh about her affair with Marcus, this led to Niamh knocking out Paul with a bottle of whiskey.
Niamh leaves Paul lying unconscious at home and goes to pick up her car in the garage with Ruth in tow.
Viewers were left shocked at the unexpected twist.
Paul will go mad when he wakes up & finds that Niamh smashed him over the head with his bottle of Jameson, that bottle cost €30 #faircity— Pete (@peterwalsh27) April 19, 2017
