This article or section needs expansion.

Brooklyn fandom is fairly small. The most popular pairing is the canonical Eilis/Tony.

Jim Farrell occasionally appears in same-actor crossovers with other characters portrayed by Domhnall Gleeson (such as General Hux).

Fanart includes gifs and edits of footage from the film, as well as portraits of Eilis, such as jolsche's 2016 digital portrait based on Saoirse Ronan's portrayal.
