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.

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.
