Competition time: Win tickets for ‘The Father Ted Experience’

The Athlone Advertiser in association with Radisson Blu Hotel Athlone is giving away three pairs of tickets for The Father Ted Experience - the ultimate night out for fans of the hit show this Christmas - on Wednesday, December 27.

The show features stand-up comedians Joe Rooney, who played Father Damo in the original TV show, and Patrick McDonnell, who played Eoin McLove. Both will have the audience in stitches of laughter from the very start of the night.

There will be live music on the night from The Afters who, dressed as priests, play the music and hits which featured in the TV show throughout the years. These include classics like "My Lovely Horse", "Ghost Town" and "My Lovely Mayo Mammy". They will also play some unholy party hits. The audience is encouraged to participate and can attend in Father Ted fancy dress if desired.
