The men of Carrigstown will be able to put their feet up on Wednesday when Fair City airs its first all-female episode to mark International Women's Day.

Feuds will be laid to rest and others will reach new heights as several of the show's women end up in a lock-in at McCoy's pub.

One thing's for sure - viewers can expect plenty of drama as the cocktails flow and tensions rise.

The truth is exposed as Niamh finally draws a line under Paul's affair with Hayley.

Carol is left dumbfounded when she discovers Hayley has been the woman Paul has been romancing behind his wife's back.

Feud

Meanwhile, Jane and Orla come to blows as they battle it out over accountant Dermot's money, which has mysteriously gone missing.

Debbie and Rose finally end their feud and reach a truce.

As they reminisce on kidnapping victim Katy, they light a candle in her honour.

Fair City executive producer Brigie de Courcy said the special episode has been "months in the making", and she hopes fans respond well to it.

"We're so excited to air this very special all-female episode, which is a first for an Irish soap," she said.

"Strong women have always been at the heart of Fair City, so we decided what better way to celebrate International Women's Day than putting our Carrigstown ladies out front and centre in their very own episode?

"The programme has been months in the making. We've been planning well in advance to ensure that all these characters collide on the same day.

"I really hope the audience at home will enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it."

To mark the episode, RTE Player will host a series of short behind-the-scenes features in which Clelia Murphy (Niamh), Aisling O'Neill (Carol) and Rebecca Grimes (Hayley) discuss their roles in the episode.
