YESSS – The Father Ted Christmas Special Is On The Telly Tonight


That’s it. Our plans of going out on the lash tonight have been cancelled and we’ve only got Father Ted to blame.

Up there with Glen Hansard busking on Grafton Street and Midnight Mass, watching A Very Christmassy Ted is a tradition that’s been going on a looooong time in Irish households, and it’s on the telly tonight.

The episode features the iconic lingerie scene and Father Ted winning The Golden Cleric Award 

While Christmas shopping, Ted and Dougal accidentally wander into what turns out to be the largest lingerie section in Ireland, prompting Ted to worry that there will be a scandal if they are discovered.

It airs on More4 tonight at 9pm. Grab the popcorn and settle in.
