WE ALL KNOW how good ‘The Young Offenders’ was. The series which follows best mates Conor and Jock around warmed many of our hearts and caused us to shed a few tears too.

The series itself was so good that it has be nominated for a very prestigious international television award called the Rose d’Or Award. They’ve been nominated in the ‘Best Sitcom’ Category alongside Channel 4’s ‘The Windsors’, Acorn TV’s ‘Detectorists’ and Polyphon Film’s ‘Magda macht das schon!’

According to the Irish Film and Television Network (IFTN)  the award defines ‘the gold standard of excellence and achievement in entertainment programming’ which is a really good thing obviously!

The show has already picked up two IFTA’s this year and given that over 500 programmes are sent into the awards for nomination, this is a massive achievement for creator Peter Foott’s show.

Speaking to IFTN Peter Foott said;

The Rose d’Or Awards are highly respected internationally, and it’s a huge honour to receive a nomination for The Young Offenders in the sitcom category alongside some truly amazing shows. The whole team is thrilled with the nomination.”

To add to the Irish interest BBC’s ‘Peaky Blinders’ has also been nominated for an award in the ‘Best Drama Series’ category. It will go up against Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ and Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’. Some fairly stiff competition so.

Congratulations guys!
