Fermanagh is one of the parts of Northern Ireland highlighted in new TV series, ‘Hold the Front Page’ as two comedians travel around UK newsrooms seeking the front page of local newspapers.

In Northern Ireland, comedians Josh Widdicombe and Nish Kumar are assigned to ‘Farming Life’ and the programme documents their hijinks right across Northern Ireland as they seek a front page story and ask, how hard can it be?

Fermanagh is served well in the programme as the pair interview local butcher and farmer Pat O’Doherty on Inish Corkish island on Lough Erne, where he discusses his pigs and the famous Black Bacon.

Of course, antics ensue as the pair travel to the island.

Despite working for an agriculture newspaper, the pair find themselves at Brewster Park, the home of Enniskillen Gaels, interviewing club ambassador Adrian Dunbar where the ‘Line of Duty’ actor outlines ambitious investment plans for the club.

A spokesperon from broadcaster Sky previewed the show and said: “Nish and Josh head across the Irish Sea to Northern Ireland where they are off to work for Farming Life.

“To do well, our guys will not only have to know about journalism, they will also have to learn about farming.

“Their first assignment should be a front-page banker as they head to a local agricultural show, but only if they can get to grips with the baffling world of pedigree sheep judging.

“Their second day in country life sees them meet a farmer who owns a private island on the beautiful Lough Erne – but they have to navigate to the island by boat in order to get their story.

“The day continues as they land a hot scoop – ‘Line of Duty’ star Adrian Dunbar is in the area representing a local GAA club.

“Can our starstruck reporters turn a sporting story into a farming one?”

Continuing, the spokesperson said: “Their final days working for the paper see both try to get to grips with a mysterious group known as The Mummers.

“Josh tries his hand at a cooking column, while Nish confronts both his fear of animals as he meets a farmer involved in ‘Game of Thrones’, and then later his fear of heights as he heads up a wind turbine.”

The series is available to watch on demand and the episode focused on Northern Ireland will air on Sky Showcase on January 25 at 9pm.
