It's finally over, Fair City fans react as that storyline comes to an end at last
How long was that storyline again?
OK, after 13 long months, the Fair City storyline of Katy and Ciaran seems to be over.
Katy had been kept prisoner by the evil Ciaran since last year, and while we're no die hard fans of Fair City, even we managed to get wrapped up in the craziness of the whole situation.
Tonight, fans of the show got to see Katy, played by Amilia Stewart, return home to her family.
People had been very sick of the storyline over the past few weeks with one angry fan starting a petition which received over 8,000 signatures to get the writers to end the storyline.
William Thomas wrote on the petition:
"Last May a girl called Katy O'Brien went missing in a soap called Fair City in Ireland. We eventually found out in September she was being held captive by a masked man and then it was reveled to be the most obvious person called Ciaran. Ciaran was introduced a few episodes just before Katy went missing and almost became part of the O'Brien family. He instantly became part of the community after getting a job off Paul Brennan. We later found out he also rents his own garage where he fixes motorbikes. He also rents a house in Dublin. For a signal man this is a lot of money. Whilst feeding/clothing a girl he's keeping looked up. Anybody who watches the show knows how tedious this is becoming. I could write so much more. Ciaran got a woman pregnant and is living with her and her brain damaged sister who knows about Katy but she can't remember.
"Fair City writers need to end this story as soon as possible!"
Well William, you got your wish tonight, and you weren't the only one relieved to see it end.

Did I miss a whole episode or is Katy just after arriving at home all of a sudden? #FairCity
