Alex Murphy as Conor MacSweeney
Conor is the son of Mairéad MacSweeney and best friend of Jock O'Keefe. Conor's father was killed in an accident at work. He tends to follow Jock's schemes, rather than being the leader of their misadventures. In spite of being very shy with girls, he recently started seeing his Principal's daughter Linda Walsh (Demi Isaac Oviawe).
Chris Walley as Jock O'Keeffe
Jock is the best friend of Conor. Among his many trouble-making schemes, he sometimes wears a mask and poses as "fake Billy" - much to the chagrin of the real Billy (Shane Casey) - to steal things. Jock is abused by his alcoholic father and when Conor's mother Mairéad discovers this, she takes Jock in. Jock is dating Siobhan Walsh (Jennifer Barry) and recently discovered she is pregnant with his child.
Hilary Rose as Mairéad MacSweeney
In spite of her no-nonsense, harsh, expletive-filled attitude towards son Conor, Mairéad has a heart of gold. She took in Jock - in spite of thinking he's a bad influence on Conor - when she learned of his father's abuse. She works hard at the fish counter in a local supermarket to keep them all going. Mairéad is in a relationship with local police officer, Sergeant Tony Healy (Dominic MacHale), much to Conor and Jock's dismay as they consider Healy their enemy.
P.J. Gallagher as Principal Barry Walsh
Barry Walsh is the principal of St. Finan's Community School, of which Conor, Jock, and his daughters Siobhan and Linda are all students. He wholly disapproves of Conor and Jock dating his daughters and hasn't done much to hide his feelings on the matter.What channel can I watch 'The Young Offenders' on?
