Jamie-Lee O’Donnell Is STELLAR’s Incredible Cover Star For September

What the Derry Girl did next...

It’s almost September, the summer is almost over, kids are going back to school, and the latest issue of STELLAR magazine is about to land on shelves across the country. Exciting times across the board.

Our beautiful September issue is out tomorrow (Thursday, August 17), and it stars the amazing, the talented, the gorgeous Jamie-Lee O’Donnell. 

The Derry Girl chats to editor-in-chief Megan Roantree all about the new season of Screw, the importance of working class representation, and how she deals with fame.

“I don’t think I’m at the point where I can fully grasp the impact [of Derry Girls],” she says. “My brain isn’t letting me do it yet.” 

This issue features a STELLAR money special, where we dive deep into managing cash when times are tough, the why behind emotional spending, and whether cash stuffing is the key to saving. We also consider how to talk about money, and the truth behind those ‘Buy Now, Pay Later’ schemes. 

We’ve got all of that, as well as: 

  • Your A-Z of autumn style 
  • Understanding post-traumatic growth
  • A deep dive into coming off the pill
  • How to trust your gut when it comes to romance
  • A chat with queen Maura Higgins, and…
  • All the info you need to vote for your favourite InstaStar (our awards ceremony takes place next month – vote here, now!

Pick up your copy nationwide from Thursday, and stay tuned for a sneak peak of our exclusive chat with Jamie-Lee tomorrow!
