In the latest Spiderman comic, he’s been flying the Irish flag proud with a sneaky reference to a Father Ted episode. A statue in New York says ‘Father Larry Duff’, who we all know is this guy…

It was spotted by eagle-eyed Adam Hurley, and later confirmed by Will Sliney himself.

The actual statue is of Francis P Duffy, a Canadian American soldier, Roman Catholic priest, and chaplain for the 69th Infantry Regiment, a unit of the New York Army National Guard consisting of many of the city’s Irish-American population.
