Did you cop that Sr Assumpta from Father Ted is also the woman in the gas boiler ad with Daniel O'Donnell?

SR ASSUMPTA WAS the true hero of Father Ted.

For starters, she came up with the Ice Bucket Challenge.

She had to put up with Fr Dougal a lot.

Not to mention her extremely relatable reaction to cake.


Though it was never explicitly confirmed whether she enjoyed the music of Daniel O’Donnell, it’d be a safe one to assume, right? It’s a nun thing, surely?


Anyway, I’m sure that Sr Assumpta would be only delighted to know that the woman who player her, Rosemary Henderson, went on to play an absolute Daniel O’Donnell superfan.


Yep. The Daniel O’Donnell stan in the ad for Gas Networks Ireland (who tells Daniel she’d “like him to leave” after offering his repairs service) is also Sr Assumpta. What are the odds?


Mind = blown.


Cheers to Aidan on Twitter for the spot!
