After three seasons, Derry Girls is coming to an end. 

In typical Derry Girls fashion, the end comes full of bittersweet moments, with laughter and tears. 

While fans prepare to say goodbye to the beloved characters, the cast must also bid farewell to the host of offbeat, completely original personalities they have portrayed since 2018.

Here's how the stars have said goodbye so far:

Siobhán McSweeney

Cork actor Siobhán has played the sarcastic and scary Sister Michael since the first episode. She is a firm fan favorite. 

Siobhán posted a picture of the habit she has worn over the course of the show, a poignant tribute to a great character.

She shared an Instagram post about what the show meant to be her as a real life Derry Girl.
