Comedian John Bishop joined members of the Portrush Arcadia Bathing Club in February of this year as part of filming for his TV series ‘John Bishop’s Ireland’.

Next week sees the fourth and final part which will showcase the most northerly parts of Northern Ireland.

Ireland means a lot to comedian John Bishop. It was whilst gigging the small clubs and bars there that he decided to quit his job in pharmaceuticals and give stand-up comedy a proper go – a decision that changed his life beyond recognition.

Throughout this series, John has embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime, 600-mile road trip around the Emerald Isle, taking a deep dive into Irish culture.

It has been a rollicking and hilarious voyage that has followed John discovering iconic sights and quirky customs, performing his comedy along the way, from a small and cramped gig in a Limerick pub, through to the biggest stage in all of Ireland.

In the fourth, concluding episode next week, John travels to one of the most northerly parts of Ireland, Portrush. Battered by big swells and cold arctic winds, John goes swimming with a local swimming club, before discovering a unique taxi tradition in Belfast’s Falls Road. In South Armagh, he meets farmer Jas McDonald for an idiosyncratic take on the reality of living on the North and South border.

The programme will air on – Fri 17th May 2019
