As filming for the second series of the Sky One show continues in Boyle, Co Roscommon, sources close to the production revealed a third series was being commissioned. The official announcement is set to be made within weeks.

The cast and crew of 'Moone Boy' -- including writer and star Chris O'Dowd -- set the clock back in Boyle yesterday, when they filmed a St Patrick's Day parade in the town.

Local Fine Gael TD Frank Feighan loved his part as an extra in a role that came easy to him -- a politician enjoying the town parade.

"The 'Moone Boy' people asked me would I be a dignitary on the trailer for the parade and I suppose there's not that much acting in it for me," he said.

Mr Feighan is no stranger to the limelight, he previously appeared on the RTE show 'You're a Star' in 2006.
