Last night saw the annual 2018 IFTA Gala Television Awards return to the RDS in Dublin. Nominees across 23 categories walked the star-studded red carpet to be in with a chance of winning a coveted award.

The attendees, as always, documented their evening on social media; giving us all a glimpse inside the show and often making us laugh in the process. Some of the best tweets of the night came from the cast and crew of Channel 4 comedy Derry Girls, who brought a cardboard cut-out of actress Nicola Coughlan, who could not attend:

It worked even better when the show won an award for Best Comedy:

The evening also saw some great style, especially among the men in attendance:

And of course, the ladies of the Six One news were ever the professionals:

The evening, hosted by comedian Jason Byrne, saw winners from some of our favourite series, including Derry Girls, Room to Improve and so many more. The night’s awards also paid homage to actor Shay Healy, who received a Lifetime Achievement Award. Check out the full list of winners below:
