Smother Season 2 has hit national television screens in recent weeks, showcasing, once again the stunning landscapes of West Clare. Filmed in Lahinch and surrounding areas, Smother is currently broadcast on RTE One on Sunday evenings.

Funded by Fís Éireann / Screen Ireland and the WRAP Fund and with BBC Studios distributing the project internationally, Smother, has raised the profile of filming in Clare providing significant employment and investment in the local economy.

Produced by Treasure Entertainment, Smother has been a catalyst for local talent with a number of episodes written by local writer Ursula Rani Sarma and a host of local talent and trainees assisting on the production.

The production has been supported by Innovate Limerick through Film in Limerick, who have a regional remit for developing the sector in the Mid-West who have produced a short behind-the-scenes film on the filming in Lahinch.
