Orlaith Rafter is an Irish actor, novelist and playwright. She is known to television viewers as the character Robin McKenna in long-running soap opera Fair City.

She was interviewed for the special A Fair City for Love.[1] She is on record as saying she is nothing like her screen character in Fair City. Cars do not interest her and neither do material things.[2]

Rafter is currently on a year of absence from Fair City. She wrote her first play, Mercury Memory, during this time.[3] She is also experimenting with novel writing but intends to eventually return to the screen.[4]

She married IT worker Mick Quinlan in 2011.[5]
