WATCH: Irish family recreate the Father Ted theme tune outside of the very house itself

Colm Boohig


Many fans, from Ireland and abroad, have visited the parochial house over the years to pay homage to the iconic Father Ted, but few have recreated the famous theme tune right outside it.

That’s exactly what this family from Dublin did when they stopped off at the famous location.

JOE reader Damhnait Uí Ruairc sent us this clip of his brother Dónal O’Riain on fiddle, sister Clíona O’Riain on whistle and daughter Úna Ní Ruairc on guitar, as they performed their own rendition of that unmistakable theme.

Have a look here.
