Last night saw RTE host it’s very first Comic Relief show to raise money for charities that have been impacted by Covid-19.

The broadcasting network had a star-studded line-up, from the best in the business of Irish comedy and entertainment, all in a bid to raise much-needed funds for the Irish charity sector.

The night saw a Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal reunite for a special episode of Normal People, Bridget and Eamon were also back on RTE and Derry Girls had a Zoom call with Saoirse Ronan which was hilarious.

There were many other stars on the show including Chris O’Dowd, Niall Horan and Hozier, and it was also expertly hosted by Deirdre O’Kane, Nicky Byrne, Jennifer Zamperelli, and Eoghan McDermott.

Twitter was on fire last night as thousands across the country tuned in to watch the one off special.

Hearing Paul Mescal, Andrew Scott and Daisy Edgar Jones singing on the RTE Comic Relief was unexpected but brilliant #RTEComicRelief #NormalPeople #Fleabag
