Fans of Derry Girls will be familiar with the hilarious Sister Michael memes that crop up on social media during and after each new episode, inspired by the character’s acerbic one-liners and trademark eye roll.

So, just one and a half seasons in to the Channel 4 hit, Sister Michael is already well on the way to being immortalised as a classic comedic character, and nobody is more tickled than the woman who plays her, Cork native Siobhán McSweeney.

“It’s extraordinary, and how quickly they appear!” she laughs of those aforementioned memes.  “People are so funny.  Even before an episode is over there are three or four out there.  I can barely look at them with the amount of chins!  People say that actors are vain.  It’s the complete opposite of vanity.  You couldn’t look at yourself on screen like that if you were in any way vain or self-conscious.  There’s no glamour in our world!” [ . . . ]
