Derry Girls: Twitter reacts to bittersweet finale

The first series of Derry Girls came to a heartwrenching end on Thursday night, finishing up a six episode run of huge laughs from creator Lisa McGee.

The final episode saw Erin, played by Saoirse Jackson, become editor of her school's magazine and as always madness ensued.

But it was the final moments of the episode that had everyone talking on Twitter, as the young cast danced away in their school hall while older characters solemnly watched the aftermath of a fatal bombing unfold on TV.

With The Cranberries' Dreams providing the soundtrack it was an unexpected and poignant moment depicting the reality of the Troubles.

Here's what Twitter had to say:
