What will happen to Katy now?

After a shocking season finale, Donegal actresses Brídín Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh and Máirín De Buitléir are back to the fore of one of the biggest storylines of TG4’s Ros na Run.

Season 23 ended with many questions about the future of the Daly family from Donegal as they were caught up in a distressing story about gaslighting and coercive control.

Season 24, which begins on Tuesday 3rd of September, will hopefully ease viewers’ worries as they eagerly await the fate of the Daly sisters and Mack.

Donegal’s Daly Family, consists of Rann na Feirste, Gaoth Dobhair and Gort an Choirce actors Niall Mac Eamharcaigh (John Joe), Brídín Ní Mhaoldomhnaigh (Katy), Máirín De Buitléir (Dee) and Máire Uí Rabhartaigh (Noreen).

There has been much anguish between sisters Dee and Katy and their poor father John Joe.

After a revenge plot led by Dee, Katy will have to convince her distraught father she’s not insane and it is her sister Dee who is coercively controlling her.

The Daly family are ultimately being torn apart, as a forlorn John Joe becomes more distraught at his daughters’ situation.

Viewers will eagerly watch for Dee’s husband Mack’s reaction and moves this season too.
