Irish fans have praised the TV adaption of Sally Rooney’s first novel Conversations with Friends as it hit screens on Wednesday night.

The 12-part series premiered on BBC Three and on subscription streaming service Hulu on Sunday. However RTÉ viewers had to wait until tonight for their first glimpse.

It follows the success of the series Normal People – a reworking of her second novel – in 2020, which made household names of Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones.

The latest screen adaptation is a coming-of-age drama set in Dublin and tells the story of Irish millennials who get drawn into a confusing romantic circle.

It follows best friends and former lovers Frances and Bobbi who perform poetry together.

Fans took to social media on Wednesday night to share their thoughts on the much-anticipated drama.
