Charlie, the much talked about Irish political drama based on real events, makes its international debut on RTÉ Player International.

Get a dose of reality with F**k Cancer, as 2FM DJ and columnist, Louise McSharry, shares her very personal story of battling cancer while in the midst of preparations for her upcoming wedding.

Available to watch now, F**k Cancer brings the viewer Louise’s unique dark humour and wry attitude to dealing with a serious illness at the age of just 31, when she was diagnosed. Be prepared for laughter, tears, highs, lows, twists and turns and some irreverent language!

Here's a taste of what you can expect from RTÉ's new season of shows...

Brand New to RTÉ Player International is series one of Ballykissangel.

Filmed in the scenic Vale of Avoca, Co. Wicklow, Ballykissangel focuses on a young English Catholic priest as he is transferred to Ireland and becomes part of a rural community where he deals with a myriad of characters not necessarily fans of the clergy.

With more series to follow, this is one not to be missed.

Ray D’Arcy marks his return to RTÉ television with a new prime-time Saturday night chat-show, available to watch live and on-demand now.

The Ray D’Arcy Show promises to be a lively mix of chat, comedy and music, Irish and international celebrity guests alongside guests from all walks of Irish life making unmissable TV that gets people talking.

Keeping things interesting with a good dose of comedy, a brand new series of Hardy Bucks and a new show from The Rubberbandits is coming to RTÉ Player International this month.

The third series from the Hardy Bucks gang – Hardy Bucks Rides Again, is one of mayhem and madness, tackling love triangles, broken hearts and new business ventures.

In The Rubberbandits’ Guide to 1916, Limerick’s finest rapping comedians give us a crash course in Irish history from Brian Ború, through the Famine right up to Irish independence, with the help of the Trout of No Craic, Willie O’DJ, and some lads from the local takeaway. And a goat.

Join Maia Dunphy as she tackles the impending birth of her son by talking to women who’ve given birth in every possible way and place; and considers the modern Irish emigrant experience in Maia Dunphy’s Truth About

Or immerse yourself in the Irish country music scene as Stetsons and Stilettos documents country music in Ireland from the perspective of performers including Nathan Carter and the fans who love it.
