You all might remember the tales of vikings from Junior cert history, or perhaps you know if from being one of those annoying shouting folk on the Viking Splash Tour in Dublin. Either way, you're about to see it all being brought back to life in TV drama form. Way back when, Ireland was just here minding its own business, when the vikings rocked up and took over the place. It was pretty unexpected too, as before that they had always done their ravaging and pillaging over to the East, and rarely bothered with us western folk out at the edge of Europe. Viking Ragnar Lothbrok had different ideas though, and that's what brought them here. Lothbrok (played by Travis Fimmel) was also the first viking to emerge from Norse legend and on to the pages of history. Filmed in Co. Wicklow, and starring Gabriel Byrne, the show looks like it will be our new Sunday night entertainment going into the spring.
