THE OUTLAW Concy Ryan and Lucky Run are two Galway based drama series competing with six others from across the country on RTÉ’s StoryLand competition.
Both shows are available to view online at http://www.youtube.com/storyland and the public can vote for their favourite show up until March 1. Previous winners of StoryLand include The Hardy Bucks and Zombie Bashers.
The Outlaw Concy Ryan is a new comedy-mockumentary series, which follows the adventures of proud Moyhill native Concy Ryan who is taking on a new government initiative to regenerate his local area. Episode one sees Concy hijack a tabloid TV crew in a determined bid to tell his story and preserve his way of life.
The Outlaw Concy Ryan is produced by Two Hungry Fish, a film and TV production company based in Headford, run by husband and wife team Ivan McMahon and Molly O’Driscoll, in association with Limerick based co-producer and actor Francis Ryan.

Lucky Run is a fast-paced adventure about a young man who finds himself in a lot of trouble after a wild night on the town. It was shot in Tuam last month and features performances from Dónal O’Meachair, Larry McGowan, Seóna Tully, and Ros na Rún’s Fred McCloskey as well as a host of local characters in cameo roles.
There will be a launch party for Lucky Run this Saturday at 8.30pm in the Bierhaus, Henry Street. There will be a screening of the first episode of the series followed by a marathon DJ session of hip-hop, soul, funk, and house.
