Somebody has started an online petition to bring an end to a certain Fair City storyline

It's amazing what some people get worked up about.

Do you watch Fair City? If so, you differ from us but we will say 'to each their own', everyone's taste is different, etc etc.


A gentleman called William Thomas is clearly a fan of the soap, so much so that he has created a petition on to get the writers of Fair City to change one of their storylines.

He writes:

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!

The petition was started on Sunday and already has almost 500 supporters.

If you were in doubt about the national significance of getting this storyline changed, consider the following sentence from another signatory of the petition.

I am really getting bored of Katy been in there best thing ever is that she has her eyebrows done and she supposed to be locked up gone to the point where I don't want to watch it no more

It's clearly time for RTÉ to take notice.
