Chris Walley From Young Offenders Wins Prestigious Oliver Award

Chris Walley From Young Offenders Wins Prestigious Oliver Award

Our two favourite Cork lads were nominated for some serious awards not too long ago, and since last night, Chris Walley has become the winner of the very prestigious award, the Oliver award.

The very talented Chris Walley was the winner of the best supporting actor award last night at the British equivalent to the Oscars - The Oliver Awards in London.

Based on his performance as 'Davey' in Connemara relative Martin McDonagh's 'The Lieutenant of Inishmore', which ran on the West End in 2018.

"I probably have peaked! Maybe I'll just retire now, never do a play again - one hit wonder," Walley said, according to the BBC.

"I feel so lucky to have gotten this. I can't imagine I'll be in this position again so I'm going to cherish this, I'm just so grateful."

If this news is making you dream of the return of our favourite Cork lads, fear not because they've been filming season two for some time now, and we're hoping it won't be too long before we see them return to our screens.

The Young Offenders season two began filming back in September, with rumours of love, Electric Picnic and a cameo with Cillian Murphy - what more could we ask for?
