There was a 'memorial BBQ' on a beach in Redwater last night and Irish people weren't having it


DESPITE REPORTS THAT Kat and Alfie’s Redwater lost two million viewers in the UK last week, we still can’t get enough of the brooding, ominous EastEnders spin-off when it airs on Sunday night on RTÉ One.

And last night’s episode ticked all the dramatic boxes:

But – and spoilers ahead – one aspect of the plot was leapt on by Irish viewers confused as to what was going on.

Following a death in the village, Agnes organised a… memorial BBQ

Every single viewer was just like: “that’s not a thing lads”

The wetsuits were out on the beach

But the only thing people wanted to talk about was the very existence of a memorial barbecue

Pizza got delivered to the beach too

People were wondering if Ireland needs to up its PR game if this is what we’re known for

Wait until it airs on BBC later in the week and this scene will have them all thinking the beach is a crucial part of the Irish grieving process.

The setting was glorious though - with inquiries coming in as to whereabouts it was shot

With the consensus being that it was Maghermore beach in Wicklow

There were some other authenticity issues regarding the beach scene. Namely:

Where were these bad boys

And, crucially, we were missing this important character

Until next week, then – where we can surely expect even more murder, drama… and stunning beach shots.
