The early sneak peek gives an intriguing glimpse of Damien Molony as Danny Dempsey with co-star Amybeth McNulty as Jenny Rane holding a box full of trophies.

We’ve no idea what is going on (and even if we did we wouldn’t tell you..) but perhaps the scene could be something to do with Danny’s boxing background as revealed by Damien in a recent RTÉ interview. Apparently he is “in the kids eyes in the village, something of a legend.”

The Episode 1 official synopsis is below.

Drama following the ambitious residents of a Wexford community as they strive for love, status and revenge. Frank Mallon faces losing everything – his wife has left him, his daughter is out of control and the bank are about to repossess his home and his business. He takes desperate measures to resolve the crisis, but only ends up making matters worse.

Damien and his young Clean Break co-star Amybeth both attended the RTÉ new season launch in August, interviewed by The Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy.

What else can we expect from the first episode of the new RTÉ drama?

Clean Break may be set in a small town but is also set to deliver big drama. The latest trailer teases an unfolding, tense, thrilling and character-focussed story. Plus an angsty Damien Molony in a waistcoat, with a strong Irish accent. Need we say more?


Clean Break is written by Billy Roche (The Eclipse), directed by Gillies MacKinnon (Behind the Lines) and Damien O’Donnell (East is East) and produced by Octagon Films and 152 Productions. Damien will be appearing as Danny Dempsey alongside Kelly Thornton, Adam Fergus, Aidan McArdle, Simone Kirby, Dermot Murphy, Amybeth McNulty, Ned Dennehy and Sean McGinley 9.30pm 27 September on RTÉ One.

Big thanks to RTÉ press for the exclusive photo and kind permission to share it.
