The family seems suspicious as to why he’s arrived in town, especially when he dodges his daughter's questions. Anto is determined to make himself at home, despite not wanting a relationship with Hayley.

The 52-year-old has previously starred in Striking Out, The Tudors and Ballykissangel.

His Fair City debut comes days after his real-life daughter Saoirse missed out on the Best Actress award at the Oscars, which went to Frances McDormand.
