Shock for Fair City fans as Neasa's fiance to be killed off
FAIR City siren Neasa is set to be plunged into grief when her fiance Turlough dies.
Barmaid Neasa Dillon, played by Aoibhin Garrihy, will be left heartbroken after her boyfriend loses his life.
Love blossomed between the unlikely couple, despite the disapproval of Neasa's father Tommy, who had concerns about the age difference between the pair.
Despite her father's disapproval, Neasa has been determined to show people in Carrigstown that their love was the real thing and moved in with Turlough at the end of last month, while he purchased a €10,000 engagement ring for the young woman.
But now Neasa's hopes for a bright future with Turlough will be no more - and her lover's death will prove to be a major turning point for her, a source on the Fair City set told the Herald.
"At first, Neasa only came in as the harlot, she was kind of floating around the place, she didn't really have any major problems.
"But this tragedy will really ground her, it is going to change her. Turlough saw beneath the surface, he encouraged her to be ambitious, to do the things she loves and that's something that no one else had done before so hopefully she'll take that with her going forward," the source explained.
Aoibhin (23), who is from Castleknock, permanently joined the Fair City crew last Autumn and has proven to be a major hit with viewers.
