I edited two episode from series two of ‘Meet The Neighbours’. The first series of Meet the Neighbours focussed on the town of Balbriggan, Co. Dublin. This second series returns to create a snapshot of four multicultural communities. Carrick-on-Shannon, Dundalk, Tallaght and Shandon Street in Cork city.
In Dundalk, where many cross the border for shopping, Nash has just opened a bridal shop. Irish Islamic convert Mohammad Lennon is campaigning for a designated burial ground for Muslims in the Dundalk area. At 53, he’s just become a father for the second time.
