Derry Girls fans are buzzing today with the news that an official book is on the way this Christmas.

Details have been revealed for ‘Erin’s Diary’ – which is set to be the perfect accompaniment to the award-winning C4 comedy series.

Production on the third series of Derry Girls has been paused due to Covid-19, but this release should fill the void nicely.

The book, written by show creator Lisa McGee, delves into young Erin’s own troubles of growing up in Derry in the 90s. Fans will get to experience another hilarious take on Derry life and 90s nostalgia, with all the wit we love from Erin and her family and friends.
