Pic: On the 16th anniversary of his death, here’s a lovely caricature of the late Dermot Morgan

It’s hard to believe he’s been gone for so long, but he’ll never be forgotten.

The Irish comedian passed away on this day in 1998, only hours after completing work on the final episode of the final series of Father Ted.

It is for Father Ted that Morgan will be best remembered but he had made a sizeable contribution to Irish comedy prior to the show through the likes of The Live Mike, Scrap Saturday and through his number one hit in 1985, ‘Thank You Very Very Much, Mr Eastwood’.

Having paid tribute to Morgan on the same day last year by revisiting some of his very best moments from Father Ted, this year we decided to do something different by giving some public exposure to a caricature sent into us today by Anita Foy of Anita Caricatures.

We think it captures both Ted and Morgan pretty well and ought to bring a smile to the faces of the many fans of both Morgan and of probably the greatest Irish comedy of all time.

Thanks to Anita Foy for sending this one our way. To see more of Anita’s work, check out her Facebook page here
