Fair City's Christmas storyline sees explosive battle between Niamh and Paul
Tensions look set to run high on Fair City as cunning Niamh tries to manipulate cheating husband Paul's sons against each other.
Meanwhile, love rat Paul is surprised by Oisin's sudden change in attitude towards Callum being involved in the entertainment venue, Speakeasy.
Niamh, played by Clelia Murphy (left), is concerned when Paul lets her know the boys are now friends as it may mean he has more time to work on his business.
She gets to work trying to encourage Callum to stir things with Oisin.
Accountant Dermot tells Niamh that Paul's money will be in their accounts as soon as the banks open after Christmas, as Niamh continues her plot to bankrupt her husband as revenge for him cheating on her with Hayley.
Niamh tells Dermot she's planning on going to Spain to join Rachel after Christmas, when Paul will be at his most smug.
Still blissfully unaware of Niamh's plan, Paul continues to focus on Hayley and grows jealous when she has another meeting with Philip Shannon.
