I’ve recently locked into “Derry Girls” on Netflix, of which I’ve just encountered this enthusiastic review in The Guardian. For me, a dialect wonk, the series is a bracing dip into Irish brogue, besides good entertainment.
The world is ready for this now [“funny young women”], and happy days — because we’re not going anywhere.
