Congratulations to all the winners at the Gala sponsored IFTA Television Awards last night, not least our friends at Shinawil who lifted the Best Entertainment show Award for Dancing With the Stars.

Coco Television were also on their feet with Room to Improve taking the award in the Best Factual Category.

In comedy, it was a winning night for the director and one of the stars of the Young Offenders series with Peter Foott and Chris Walley collecting Awards.

Lisa McGee picked up the Writing Award in Comedy for Derry Girls.

Gogglebox Ireland made it another success for comedy with a win in the Reality category while TV3 also hit it big in soap with Red Rock.

John Connors may not have had much time for the establishment in the making of The Travellers but they proved above any animosity by awarding him the Best Documentary Award.
