Voted Channel 4's greatest comedy show by viewers.
The four-time BAFTA award-winning Father Ted tells the hilarious tale of three Irish priests and their housekeeper. Life is hard for Ted (Dermot Morgan). Exiled to the remote Craggy Island (for reasons which never quite become clear but may have something to do with missing Church funds), he is forced to share a house with three of the most difficult people in Ireland...
First there's Father Jack (Frank Kelly), who has not been sober since 1936 and has a vocabulary which extends to three words--only two of them printable. Then there's Father Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlan): young, innocent and almost inconceivably stupid. And finally, Mrs Doyle (Pauline McLynn) the overly-attentive housekeeper who has one sole purpose in life--to supply the priests with cups of tea, usually against their will. Will the four of them ever be able to live in faithful harmony?
