We love Derry Girls airing again on Channel 4, and if you are like us, you are probably like that too. We cannot wait to look again at the likes of Erin Quinn, Orla McCool and Clare Devlin as they get up to all sorts of trouble but it made us wonder how different are the girls (and boys) who play these colorful characters like in real life. Whence do they come from? How aged are they? What does real life look like? Time has come to find out…
