This year’s Tedfest will take place on Inis Mór twice following an unprecedented demand for tickets to the weekend event.
TWO STARS of Fr Ted will perform in The Comedy Club in Cuba* tomorrow, when Patrick McDonnell and Tommy Tiernan take to the stage.
FATHER TED ran from 1995 to 1998 but more than a decade after both the show ended and the tragically early passing of the great Dermot Morgan, it still holds a vice like grip on the Irish psyche.
Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the opening of the first new town in Ireland since Shannon and Craigavon. Yes, its time to throw open the gates of Baile an Táicsigh (Toxic Town), the town where we promise to bring you the best of the worst, where you are guaranteed to get the worst service, where the roads will be the worst, the pint will be terrible, where the spittoons will never be emptied and where in order to make the rest of the country look great, we are going to feck everything bad. In demographic terms, it will be like the child in the back room of the olden days. The motto for this town will be ‘Hors de la vue, hors de l'esprit‘ (out of sight, out of mind) and by doing this, everywhere else in the country can feel good about itself.
On Friday September 18 Ardal O'Hanlon, the award winning comedian and actor - and star of Father Ted and My Hero, will return to the stand-up stage in Castlebar.
The man who was made famous by Fr Ted, Ardal O’Hanlon will be taking to the stage in Castlebar on Friday September 18. O’Hanlon is a founding father of modern Irish stand-up since he helped form Dublin’s Comedy Cellar in 1990. Ardal has a slew of comedy awards (and a BAFTA) to his name. Thanks to Father Ted, My Hero, and Big Bad World, O’Hanlon is immediately recognisable, but his incredible stand-up talent is perhaps less well known. A million miles from the naive persona of Father Dougal, O’Hanlon’s stand up is dark, sharp, and excruciatingly funny.
Next year’s Tedfest will take place over two 'Craggy Islands', Inis Mor from February 25 to 28, and Inis Oirr from March 4 to 7. Organisers hope this will finally end the long running feud between the islands and prevent the threatened break away Dickfest taking place on the smaller island.
