Derry Girls taught me the joy of feeling seen

Hello! Long time no write. This isn’t a mental health post but I wanted to share an article I’ve written and am quite proud of on a subject I’ve been struggling to articulate for a while – what it’s like to finally see your own experiences as a Northern Irish girl growing up during the Troubles.

Please do have a read and tell me what you think?

  1. I’ll have to check it out – it looks like a great show.

    I’m part of the Irish diaspora but so far removed that it’s very far removed from my day to day life.

    Thank you for the great read and suggestion to check it out.

  2. Hello, while I’m not Irish, I am a huge fan of Derry Girls and I really enjoyed your article on it!

  3. …it reminds me of “Mohawk Girls”, a Canadian comedy/drama about four young Indigenous women living on a reserve near Montreal. They used Indigenous actors, and used the authentic languages. It’s really important to be able to find yourself in Pop Culture. Congratulations on getting your piece published.
