Actual Irish trainee priest kicks Bishop Brennan up the arse

Hero. Hero. Hero.

DAILYEDGE.IE READER Noel Barrett sent us this amazing story.

For his whole life, Noel’s brother Ronan has been a huge Father Ted fan. Say Noel:

He made a Fr Dougal Doll when he was five and a half. He would not go to sleep at night until he drank a cup of really strong tea an heard the opening music to Father Ted! Weird I know!

Now a grown man, Ronan is studying for the priesthood. He and some cohorts from Maynoot were on a religious retreat and visiting a church down the country. And who did they meet shooting a film, but Jim Norton – aka Bishop Len Brennan – in priest costume.

There was only one thing for it. So Ronan did the decent thing.

All in all, it’s an impressive likeness.
