I enjoyed the two episodes that I've seen. Its gentle, imagininative humour reminded me of "A Christmas Story", though I had a little bit of trouble with the Irish slang. ("Shifting" means kissing.)

It take place in Boyle, Ireland, in the 1980s.
It's actually in the early 90's (Mary R was elected in November 1990), but damn if it doesn't make me all nostalgic (sighs happily)
I thought it was one of the sweetest sitcoms I've seen in ages and I'm very happy to hear they've started (or will soon be starting) filming a second season.

Everytime I watch though, I have to go on to Google and look up all the Irish references/county names afterwards. At least I recognized Bono and The Edge. I'm watching it from the wrong side of the Atlantic.
