The Derry Girls cast have been painted like 'one of your French girls' in a new mural

Nicola is buzzing over it.

LATE LAST NIGHT, Derry Girls actress, Nicola Coughlan, dubbed it ‘surreal’ to see herself and her castmates featured on a mural in Co Derry.

Sharing a photo of the creation in its infancy, the Galway-native wrote: “‪Derry is painting us like one of their French Girls, so surreal.”

The mural, which is located on the side of Badgers Bar, is a collaboration between Channel 4 and UV Arts; a-non profit organisation in Derry.

With viewers eagerly awaiting the launch of the show’s second season, Mayor of Derry City, John Boyle, acknowledged the impact the programme has had both here and across the Atlantic since its launch in January of last year.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, he said:

There is great anticipation here for the next instalment of the Derry Girls series and this artwork is a real tribute to the cast which will no doubt be really well received by fans.

He added; “I am delighted to see the ongoing success of the show, which has shone a spotlight on the city, our culture and our humour.”

Here’s how Nicola’s fans and followers have responded to the news.

The second season of Lisa McGee’s creation is set to air later this year.
