Last year, TV3’s first ‘Edge of Town’ series looked at people living in the north Dublin estate of Darndale. This latest series focuses on Jobstown, Tallaght, which has been all over the news since the water protest that saw the Tánaiste stuck in her car. Filmed over a year, the documentary looks at residents in the sprawling council estate who have struggled with “high unemployment, anti-social behaviour and crime”. In the first episode of the four-part series, we meet the Coomber family, who live in a three bedroom house with eleven people, as well as UFC fighter, local celebrity and pal to Conor McGregor, Paddy 'The Hooligan' Holohan.
This is Jobstown TV3: 9.00pm
