WATCH: An Irish band playing the Father Ted theme tune outside Father Ted's house will bring a smile to your face

When you thought it couldn't get any more Irish?

The Father Ted theme tune is as iconic as the show itself and is one of the very few songs where you hear the first note and immediately you know what it is.

The thirty-five-second intro will forever remain in our hearts as we are introduced to Craggy Island via aerial shots and we meet the fab four for the first time.

As Father Jack is pushed over in his wheelchair by Father Ted, the intro abruptly ends and we are already hooked and ready for the extra twenty odd minutes of chaos that will follow.

This Irish band took it upon themselves to visit the Craggy Island Parochial House and play their unique version of the Father Ted theme tune in honour of the legendary show.

Ímar is a Traditional band playing Irish, Scottish and Manx music and as you can see from their various musical instruments their version of the popular jingle, composed by The Divine Comedy, has that extra Irish-ness to it.

Mohsen Amini, a band member, told JOE that they were passing the house on their way to a festival and couldn't pass up on the chance to play outside the residence of Ted, Dougal, Jack and Mrs Doyle.

"There is 5 of us, myself (concertina), Ryan Murphy (Uilleann Pipes), Tomas Callister (Fiddle), Adam Brown (Guitar &a Bodhran) and Adam Rhodsey (Bouzouki). We've been together for the last 2 years and have just launched our debut album "Afterlight".

"We were playing at the Craiceann festival on Inisheer and couldn't pass up the opportunity to play the Father Ted theme tune outside his house on the way home to Glasgow."

Cheers to Mohsen Amini for sending this our way. If you have something you would like to share with us, send it to our WhatsApp number 087-4001102, editorial@JOE.ie or hit us up on Facebook or Twitter.
