PICS: Dermot Morgan's sons unveil his new waxwork at the national wax museum

It's actually a very good waxwork...

Father Ted remains one of the greatest things that Ireland has ever produced, and we don't say that lightly. The Graham Linehan comedy is beloved both in Ireland and the UK, even though so few episodes were ever made.

Safe to say, it has been sorely missed since the untimely passing of actor Dermot Morgan. But the popularity of the show has, if anything, grown over the last 15 or more years even though no fresh episodes have been made.

It continues to be a favourite TV Show for many different generations of people in the Emerald Isle.

Nearly two decades after they stopped making it, Irish people continue to use quotes from Father Ted in everyday life and it continues to make an impact far beyond our shores.

To celebrate the effect the show had on this country, with a lot of it going down to the comedic genius of Dermot Morgan and Ardal O'Hanlon, the national wax museum have unveiled a waxwork of Dermot Morgan in their museum.

Dermot's son's, Ben and Rob both visited on Thursday evening for the unveiling of the waxwork of their father and posed for photos with the memento.

Well deserved.
