No Helpline at the end of Fair City

The central storyline in RTÉ’s mainstay soap, Fair City, centres on domestic abuse between Damien Halpin (Maclean Burke) and his wife Suzanne (Sarah Flood). As a programme that attracts 645,200 viewers on average (source: http://tvsales.rte.ie/insights/topprogrammes.htm), I was surprised that RTÉ did not put a Helpline at the end of the programme.

Admittedly I missed the beginning where a Helpline was possibly aired, but for such a serious issue, surely RTÉ should air a Helpline at the end too.

  1. RTÉ have contacted me since and stated that ‘(D)due to human error no warning or info went out at top and end of #Faircity this has been rectified, our sincerest apologies.

    ‘Helpline information is on the Fair City website http://bit.ly/9UfdEm and have rectified to show Helpline at both the top and end of the program(me).’
