There’s nothing we love more than seeing Irish talent scooping up major awards and Aisling Bea has done exactly that. The Kildare actress has picked up her first BAFTA award.

The ceremony, which was held virtually on Friday evening was the BAFTA TV Craft Awards, and the talented actress won on the night.

Aisling won the award for Breakthrough Talent for her role as a teacher in the comedy show, This Way Up.

Accepting her speech through video link the comedian and actress said winning was an “absolute dream come true.”

Aisling also dedicated her win to her late father, Brian, who passed away when she was just three years old. Sadly, he was the same age that Aisling is now, 36 as she said he  “didn’t get to be any older” than she is today.

Many stars were quick to offer their congratulations to the star as Dermot O’Leary said; “Come on! X” and fellow Irish actress Amy Huberman commenting; “YES YOU DID!!!!!!!! Amazing amazing amazing!!!!!!!”

We couldn’t think of anyone more deserving to win!
