Gangland drama described as 'greatest Irish TV show' with incredible cast is available on ITV player

The show has recently dropped on ITVX.

A crime series which has been described as the 'greatest Irish TV show' is now available to watch on ITVX.

While the drama originally aired on Irish channel, RTE, us Brits can now catch all five seasons of the thriller on the streaming site.

The gangster drama tells the story of Dublin's drug-fuelled criminal underworld.

At the centre of the show is Darren Treacy, who is returning to Dublin after hiding in Spain in a bid to avoid the Garda.

Darren has only just returned to Ireland when he learns that his ex-girlfriend Rosie has moved on, and his brother Robbie has been shot by a rival gang.

The drive-by shooting sparks a war within the community, with Darren and his gang consumed by vengeance.

As well as a stellar plot, Love/Hate has a pretty impressive cast, with many of the actors going on to star in some huge roles since.

Robert Sheehan plays Darren, meanwhile Avengers actor Tom Vaughan Lawlor stars as Nidge and Saltburn's Barry Keoghan plays Wayne.

Also starring is Ruth Negga as Rosie, Peaky Blinders and Kin actor Aiden Gillen, Happy Valley star Charlie Murphy, Kieran O'Reilly and Killian Scott as Tommy.

Described by O'Reilly as the 'greatest ever Irish television show', some viewers are only just discovering the series after catching it on ITVX.
