Love/Hate wins big at this years IFTAs

The gang from Love/Hate were reunited, for possibly the last time, at this years’ IFTA awards over the weekend.

Nidge, Siobhan, Fran and co. were far from their on-screen characters on the red carpet and glady represented the show as it scooped up three of the top awards.

Charlie Murphy was up first, winning the award for Actress in a Lead Role Drama as Siobhan Delaney.

Then Stuart Carolan took best Script Drama before the show won best Drama overall.

Hints that the season will be returning were ablaze throughout the night, but all lips say sealed.

Speaking on the red carpet, Peter Coonan, who played Fran in Love Hate, said: "I don't know about another series, it's all up to Stuart!

"It has been hard not being together but it's lovely to catch up now.”

Unfortunately Tom Vaughan Lawlor missed out on the award for Actor in a Lead Role in Drama to Aidan Gillen for his role as Charlie Haughey in the drama Charlie.

Jamie Dornan also lost out in the same category for his role in The Fall, and let’s just say fans were not impressed.

Oscar-nominated short Song of the Sea took home the award for Best Film while Domhnall Gleeson, Deirdre O’Kane, Sarah Greene, Moe Dunford, Stephen Rea and Aisling Franciosi were among the actors who took home prizes on the night for their roles in both film and TV.
