The one about Erin’s Diary! Guess what everyone we know is getting for Christmas this year? Once upon a time a young writer from Derry was in a foreign land, it was a strange time for a sickness had befallen the earth, but she found refuge in a church, there were no statues, stations of the cross but a table and chair and a pen and paper (or a laptop maybe with wifi and an endless supply of tea!). And she did write and behold - ERIN’S DIARY the inner thoughts, scribbles, lists and drawings were born. It’s great craic! Lisa joins the TDGs for this Christmas special where you’ll also get a few hints about what will be in series 3 (was a peek, mind). Find out who inspired Granda Joe, there’s a near fallout over the buns, and a childhood question that has plagued Lisa but only Marie-Louise can answer… The End!
