THESE are the dramatic opening scenes of TV3's new soap Red Rock.

The much-hyped series, based around a busy Dublin garda station in a coastal town, is due to air in just over two weeks time and the first two episodes don't disappoint.

The debut episode of Ireland's newest continuing drama will introduce us to two main families - The Kielys and The Hennessys.

And in the first episode Red Rock opens with a body discovered on the pier. The two feuding families are immediately in the spotlight and it's not all plain sailing for Garda Sharon who, while searching the security footage, discovers shocking information about a colleague, and must decide whether or not to reveal.

Denise McCormack, who plays the show matriarch Bridget Kiely, says that she is relishing playing her new formidable character. "She is not a pure baddie, as such," the former Love/Hate star said.
