Those lads in RTE series 'Hardy Bucks' are lucky - as Susan Loughnane and Aoibheann McCaul are to star as their love interests in the new series.
The wild men of comedy are back on the small screen in Autumn - and filming for the six new episodes is currently underway in Swinford, Co Mayo.
No doubt, Susan and Aoibheann will inject some much needed glamour and colour to the lives of the Hardy Bucks guys.
Susan is known to love-hate fans for playing the role of ill-fated drug addict Debbie in three seasons of 'Love/Hate'.
And Aoibheann is known to Fair City fans for playing troublemaker Caoimhe in the long-running soap.
Dreaming big dreams, and drinking them all away in Castletown, the lads are back with a bang.
Eddie Durkan ( Martin Maloney), The Viper (Chris Tordoff) and Buzz McDonnall (Owen Colgan) will be getting up to their usual tricks - but this time they will find themselves in the middle of a love triangle.
RTE reports that The Viper will be nursing a broken heart as he runs new business 'Viper's Vapours', Eddie and Buzz may or may not have met the woman of their dreams, Frenchtoast might be back on the sauce and Boo and Kuffi might or might not be getting married.

Series director Mike Cockayne said the biggest challenge the production faces is fitting all the material they have into six half hour slots.
"It’s great to be back filming again, we’re like family now and I really feel that this series will be the best yet. The lads are all on top form and the biggest challenge we’re going to face is fitting all of this great material into a half hour," he said.
'Hardy Bucks' won RTE's drama competition 'Storyland' in 2009 and became an online favourite.
RTE brought it to the small screen in 2010 with a three-part serial.
A Christmas special followed, and then a six part series in November 2011.
Hardy Bucks The Movie was released last year and followed the gang as they set out on a last minute road trip to watch Ireland compete in the 2012 European Championships in Poland.
