  • Remarkable talent for accents, which she says comes from her parents. Her portrayal of cockney landlady Phoebe Bamford in "Goodnight Sweetheart" (1993) was so good many people refused to believe she is Irish.
  • She gave birth to her daughter Florence in April, 2004. The father of the baby is her partner, actor Rupert Penry-Jones.
  • Co-owns the production company Aphra Productions with actress Sarah Parish.
  • Dervla is an anglicised form of Deirbhile, which means `daughter of a poet'.
  • Was made to leave her convent school when she revealed her ambition to become an actress
  • She gave birth to her second child with Penry-Jones, a son called Peter, in 2006. There were no arguments over what to call him as Peter is the name of both his grandfathers.
  • She is the youngest of three daughters, her father worked in insurance and her mother was a French and English teacher.
  • She says that she is not naturally skinny, but she does watch what she eats, insisting that her love of KitKats (chocolate bar) is separating her from a sainthood!
  • Also a keen writer - she has kept a diary of all her experiences since she was 17 and jokes that one day, she will publish them under a pseudonym!
  • She apparently plays the piano, saxophone, clarinet, violin, guitar and hopes to take up the flute, as it is 'more portable'.
  • Best actress, National TV Awards 1996 Best Irish Entertainer, Irish Post Awards 1997
