Massive mural honours the Derry Girls

'Mind is blown'

comedyThe cast of Derry Girls have been honoured with a 20ft hogh mural in the town where the comedy is set.

An entire wall of Badgers pub is now a tribute to the Channel 4 and Netflix comedy, depicting the main characters – Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle and James.

Channel 4 commissioned the work from local company UV Arts to mark the show's return – which expected in early March – and it has been unveiled today.

Actress Nicola Coughlan, who plays Clare, says her 'mind is blown' by the image.

Badgers manager John Cooley has said: 'We have people coming from all over the world to look at it already. We weren't sure people would understand [he show], the Troubles and then the accent, but everyone seems to love it.'
