The second and concluding episode of Bressie's Ironmind was received yet again with a tremendous reaction from viewers, and was for the second sunday in a row the top trend in Ireland for more than four hours. The programme bore witness to the incredible courage of the cast - Colm McCormack, Jade Hoynes, Mark Foley and Orla Connolly - who dealt with their own mental health issues and tackled issues that have before now been taboo on Irish television.
