Derry Girls is proving popular with Netflix users - even if the Irish accents are proving a little tricky for some

DERRY GIRLS might be the best TV show to come out of Ireland in recent times, but it’s leaving some Netflix viewers baffled.

The second series of the hit comedy, set around a school in Northern Ireland during the troubles in the 1990s, was added to Netflix this month.

A critical and commercial hit  in the UK and Ireland, Lisa McGee’s hit show has already been commissioned for a third season with rumours of a possible film also being in the works.

It’s proven similarly popular with viewers on Netflix albeit with one slight issue: the accents.

While Derry Girls continues to earn rave reviews from fans on Twitter, some have been forced to confess they are struggling with this particular aspect of the show.

Not that they are shying away from it of course.

"I’m literally 5 minutes into Derry Girls and I love it, the accents are so ridiculously strong and I love them," one fan wrote.

Others have shown incredible dedication to the Derry Girls cause with a bingefest to rival the very best.

"I finished watching Derry girls in a day ,"

A few already have favourite characters too.

"Derry Girls is my new obsession and @nicolacoughlan is everything as Clare," a fellow fan wrote. "I want to protect her at all costs. Sister Michaels too!"

"Watched season 1 of Derry Girls & god it's a work of genius," another convert tweeted.

"I made my man watch it too - he didn't know what an Orange March was (sorry, guys, he's English) - but he also loved it mainly because he's a secondary school teacher & yes it is so right about everything! Brilliant!"

It's left some wondering how they missed the show the first time around.

"How have I never watched derry girls before fucking gas," one newfound fan declared.

They need not worry with more episodes to come, they will be getting to see more from the Derry Girls very soon.
