We are TedsTees.com, we love Fr. Ted and we love Tees.
So what better way to celebrate this than to create a website that sells, yep you guessed it, Fr. Ted t-shirts. Better still, we’ve linked up with Hattrick Productions in the UK who are the production house responsible for bringing Fr. Ted to our T.V’s and the writers themselves Arthur Matthews and Graham Linehan to make it all official and above board.
ABOUT FR. TED (Just in case you didn’t know!)
In a small parochial house on the tiny “Craggy Island” somewhere off the west coast of Ireland, three priests and a housekeeper are locked in an endless series of philosophical debates. Catholicism or cake? Religion or rollerblading? Tiny cows or big cows that are far away? Welcome to the confusing and confused world of Father Ted.
The three priests include Father Ted, who at first glance would seem to have his head screwed squarely on his shoulders. He's not a big drinker, he's not an avid rollerblader and he has a firm grip on reality. Ted has been banished to Craggy Island for reasons that never become clear, but may have something to do with misuse of church funds. Ted spends most of his time mentoring his best friend, Father Dougal. As Ted is a man of the world and Dougal is a man of Craggy Island, there is plenty of wisdom to pass on. This involves explaining the difference between near and far, which things exist and which don't, and, of course, the distinction between dreams and reality.
Father Dougal is young, innocent and almost inconceivably stupid. There is much in life that eludes Dougal. There’s nothing he likes more than watching sci-fi while wearing his rollerblades. He’s a simple man who likes simple pleasures. A very simple man, in fact.
Father Jack has not been sober since 1936 and is happy to drink toilet cleaner as a substitute for whisky. He has a remarkably succinct vocabulary, consisting of three words (drink, girls, and the third unprintable) which form the focal point of his limited mental faculties.
Mrs Doyle, the housekeeper, has one sole purpose in life – to supply the priests with cups of tea, usually against their will.
There is nothing quite like Father Ted!
