Thurles Talented Actress Amy O’Dwyer Exits “Fair City”

The very attractive and talented actress Ms Amy O’Dwyer; a native of Two-Mile-Borris, Thurles, Co. Tipperary, and she who played the character of ‘Hannah’ in the RTE One soap, ‘Fair City’, alas, met her stage death last night.

Amy’s character (Hannah) died, on set, at the hands of Dr Oakley (Marcus Lamb) after he pushed her down a stairs, as she attempted to rescue baby Saoirse.

Exiting from the soap, Ms O’Dwyer, who in previous years was no stranger to the Thurles stage,  (Phoenix Productions and Ursuline Convent Musicals), stated that she will now greatly miss her fellow cast members, especially her fellow ‘Phoenix Way’ crew, since she worked mostly in storyline with them. Despite their rocky relationship on TV screens; Miriam (Sorcha Fox) and Emmet (Daithi MacSuibhne) in real life she regards them as close friends.

Amy, also a most talented vocalist, regrets that while there were so many people she didn’t get a chance to work with, because of her daily scripts, she admits she will now miss the busy hum of working on the ‘Fair City’ set, together with the supportive comradery that was so abundantly available.

Fair City comes to our screens again tonight on RTE One at 8.00pm, and in tonight’s episode, viewers can observe the inevitable fall-out, which comes about following Hannah’s (Amy O’Dwyer) death.
