Craggy Island Drifts To Milleas Bar Thurles

Craggy Island’s most celebrated ecclesiastical celebrants, Fr. Ted Crilly, Fr. Jack Hackett and Fr. Dougal McGuire will be making a long awaited return of sorts, this weekend in Thurles.
Enthusiastic Father Ted fans will gather in Milleas Bar in the town’s Liberty Square to emulate all the characters, comedic cues and colourful kinks of the classic TV series.

The event takes place on the 28th July (Next Saturday) in The Castle Tavern (Milleas) Thurles, with all funds raised going to Suir Haven and North Tipperary Hospice. There will be a ‘Dancing Priest Competition,’ a ‘Lovely Girls Competition’ and here please note, local businesses can nominate a girl of their choice for just €10, to take part.

There will also be a battle of the bands for the best rendition of “My Lovely Horse,” and a raffle, containing some excellent prizes & all to raise much needed funds. This event is part of the “Get Back Challenge,” that has raised €10,000 over the last two years alone for North Tipperary Hospice and for Suir Haven.

Deirdre Ryan and Michelle O’Connell have just completed an 80k cycle in June last, to raise funds and this event is to further boost these funds already to hand.

Note: The event will be kicking off on Saturday next from 9.00pm and there is no cover charge, just a nominal amount to enter the various competitions. There will be live music and a DJ, so all in all it’s shaping up to be a great night, promising loads of laughter and good humour.

(Remember Ted and Dougal holding up the protest signs condemning the film “The Passion of Saint Tibulus.”)
Father Ted Crilly: Down with this sort of thing!
Father Dougal: Careful Now!

Possibly one of their funniest episodes ever.
