The second series of The Local Eye starts on RTÉ One following the fortunes of three new local newspapers – The Donegal Post, The Nenagh Guardian and Mrs Brown’s favourite paper, The Northside People.

Gareth Naughten writes:

The Northside People has been mocking up papers for the hugely popular Mrs Brown’s Boys since 2011 Tonight fans will get a unique insight into how those headlines are made – and how they sometimes get the Northside People’s group editor Tony McCullagh into strife!

The Local Eye airs at 7pm on RTÉ One
