Saoirse Ronan's dad Paul to make Fair City debut tonight
Saoirse Ronan's actor father Paul will make his Fair City debut on Tuesday night.
Paul will play Anto Collins, father of Hayley who is played by actress Rebecca Grimes.
Anto's arrival in Carrigstown shocks his daughter and his suspicious behaviour, especially with questions concerning her mother, makes her believe he's trying to keep something from her.
As Hayley tries to figure out the reason behind Anto's sudden appearance, he begins to make himself at home in Carrigstown.

His wife Sharon will arrive in Thursday night's episode and she's played by Love/Hate star Neili Conroy.
Paul is a successful actor who appeared alongside Brad Pitt in The Devil's Own and worked in TV with roles in Love/Hate and Ballykissangel.
His Fair City debut comes days after his real-life daughter Saoirse missed out on the Best Actress award at the Oscars, which went to Frances McDormand.
