Iftas after-hours: what happened AFTER the ceremony


It was certainly a swish and sophisticated evening, and by now an established highlight of the Dublin social calendar.

However, once the Iftas had wrapped up, many invitees opted to let their hair down and really relax.

Irish celebrities had flocked to the Mansion House for the main yesterday evening, but then headed straight for Lillies Bordello in their glad-rags once the ceremony ended.

Iftas host Caroline Morohan was spotted among the revellers at the Grafton Street club, which is well-known for attracting a star-studded crowd. 

Actress, author and mum-of-two, Amy Huberman, even gave us a sneak-peak at what happened once the awards ended with a selfie.


God nobody was having any fun last night….

Pictured along side Peter Coonan, better known as Fran from Love/Hate, Amy's blurry picture was playfully captioned, "God nobody was having fun last night"

Indeed, the entire cast of Love/Hate had lots to celebrate having dominated the awards ceremony, which is often billed as Ireland's answer to the Oscars. Tom Vaughan Lawlor, who plays Nidge, took to Twitter this morning to simply say that a "great night had by all".


And Lillie's was clearly the place to be as double Ifta-winner Sarah Greene was in attendance also. 

Outlander Star Caitriona Balfe stunned us on the red carpet with her gorgeous yellow Orla Kiely dress and looked to be in great spirits throughout the evening. 

Thankfully, TV3 filmed the entire event, which you can catch on Bank Holiday Monday June 1 at 9pm.
