Down with this sort of thing! Careful now!

Happy 50th birthday to the fab comedian Ardal O'Hanlon, eternally beloved of audiences everywhere as the hapless Father Dougal in one of the funniest comedy series ever written, Father Ted.
Father Dougal: "God Ted, I’ve heard about those cults. Everyone dressing in black and saying our Lord’s going to come back and judge us all."
Father Ted: "No…no Dougal, that’s us. That’s Catholicism you’re talking about there."
Despite his career in stand-up, and numerous TV series since the demise of the show following the death of its star Dermot Morgan in February 1998, it is for the lovable Dougal that we still love him, twenty years on.

Here are a few of Dougal's finest moments, for your delectation...
