Even if some of the hosts have eight bedrooms and a chocolate fountain, one wean from Chernobyl is not impressed and Granda Joe's new ‘friend’ has started a Cold War. Pauline, Jeanie and Marie Louise talk condoms, blow-dries and the downsides to a bomb damaged bargain. Pauline discovers why it really matters whether Granda Joe bought a cream horn or a cream finger and whether the Stations of the Cross is a suitable place for a date.

Talking Derry Girls

Fancy a bit of craic?! Jeanie, Marie-Louise and Pauline love the Channel 4 sit-com, Derry Girls, based in their home city. We thought it would be fun to rewatch the series, and chat about each episode in detail. You don’t have to be from Derry or even a girl. Being a Derry Girl is a state of mind. Come on in!
