RTÉ drama Love/Hate has dominated at the 2015 IFTA awards, winning Best Drama and Best Script, while Best Lead Actress went to cast member Charlie Murphy.
Tomm Moore’s animation Song of the Sea was the Best Film winner and Lenny Abrahamson’s comedy Frank and Terry McMahon’s acclaimed drama Patrick's Day also took home awards.
Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, who played crime king Nidge, and also appeared as spin doctor PJ Mara in RTÉ's CJ Haughey drama, Charlie, was among the sizeable Love/Hate contingent at the ceremony at Dublin's Mansion House last night (May 24).
"I haven't seen some of them for ages," he said of the Love/Hate cast. "It's nice to see Aidan Gillen and a few of the other guys.
"My wife said enjoy it, it's the last Love/Hate for most of us," he added.
Best Lead Actress winner Charlie Murphy said she was "proud" to be part of RTÉ's upcoming 1916 drama Rebellion alongside Sarah Greene and fellow Love/Hate cast member Brian Gleeson.
"I'm very proud to be a part of it," she said. "[Sarah Greene and I] were on stage together in The Druid before and we can't wait to get back together."
Highlights of the IFTAs will be aired on TV3 on June 1.
