When Ollie Hegarty (Niall McGonagle) is knocked down by a speeding motorbike driven by Paul Shields (Troy Devaney) the two men end up in the same hospital ward. The two men are willing to forgive and forget – until their true football colours are shown for one is a fanatical Finn Harps supporter while the other is a Derry City fan.
The hitherto peaceful ward is thrown into chaos much to the annoyance of the stern Ward Sister (Andrea Fitzgerlad) and her staff – the hard working Nurse Holmes (Mary Sweeney) and the not so bright trainee Freda Ferguson (Bernie Thompson).
The other patients have their own issues. Agreeable Bert (John Duffy) has both a domineering wife (Martha played by Caroline Bell) and a demanding bit on the side (Delores, Cathleen Bradley) to contend with while Harold (Shaun Laverty) is a mild mannered man with a weak bladder.
Add in eccentric spinster and hospital visitor Miss Cherry (Marina Marcinekova), wrestler Mad McGurk and his sister Phyllis (Laura Friel) and you have a recipe for hilarious madness and mayhem set in the hospital ward from hell.
