It is believed all four play roles as the Garvey sisters in the series, which is due to stream on Apple TV.

Among its writing team includes Ross O’Carroll-Kelly creator Paul Howard, while Brendan Gleeson is also believed to be taking part in the series.

Horgan said she was keen to film at the Forty Foot, famous for bathing on Dublin’s southside, “because of the history of the place … We knew it couldn’t be closed down, because it belongs to the public, so we thought, Let’s take our chances. But you forget that your footprint is rather wide and it’s very difficult to hide.”

Based on Clan, a Belgian series, it is the first result of Horgan’s deal with the American streaming service, which she signed in 2019.
