Viewers of the popular RTE soap are in for a big shock tonight.

Fair City has been pulling out all the stops drama-wise lately and tonight's episode is no different as mechanic Michael meets an untimely end.

Michael's mum Debbie has suffered the brunt of the trauma as she was held hostage by the villainous Cathal in a hotel basement last week.

Now she has to face the horrifying news that Michael suffered a brain hemorrhage and died suddenly.

Michael (Richard McWilliams) arrived in Carrigstown last year to work at Paul's garage, although he had appeared previously as a one-night stand for Paul's wife Niamh.

In September last year Niamh left Paul to go and live with her lover although they split up again soon after.

Even so, Niamh is shocked to learn the news about Michael tonight.  Initially she's told he's in hospital, but later in Phelan's Tommy arrives in to tell her that Michael didn't make it.
