Derry Girls: Northern Ireland buzzing for Maiden City comedy after second episode
The second episode of Derry Girls aired on Thursday night - and from the reaction, the comedy about four Maiden City girls and their English friend turned the craic up to the full 90.
This week the girls - and boy - got excited about the forthcoming 'eurotrotters' trip to Paris - only for the price to put a dent in their enthusiasm.
They then went in search of ways of bridging the gap in paying for the trip, once they realised their parents' hadn't thought of starting a trust fund as it turns out "they may be poor".
The appearance of comedian Kevin McAleer pleased many while the discussion on how many bags of chips were needed for dinner rang true for many a Northern Ireland household.
The show ended with the lot of them tied to radiators and a tall tale concerning a scented candle - pure class.
And it had Twitter in hysterics.
- Stall the ball, Channel 4 has only gone and given Derry Girls a second series
- Derry Girls star Jamie-Lee O'Donnell: 'I'm very proud to be from this city and we are all so happy to help put Derry on the map'
