Derry Girls featured in special edition of Smash Hits magazine ahead of series finale


Smash Hits magazine is back after a 16 year hiatus – with our very own Derry girls and the little English guy on the cover.

The popular teen magazine was a favorite in the late 70s, 80s and 90s, but published its last issue in 2006 with Ordinary Boys singer Preston on the cover.

Famous for featuring lyrics to the latest hits and interviews with music big names, the magazine has helped propel the careers of Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovon, Britney Spears and Oasis, among others.
