Inishmore in Galway, Ireland will soon be transformed into land of comedies with Tedfest, the world’s first Father Ted Festival. The 4-day spectacular takes place every year in February on the picturesque Islands of Inis Mor (Inishmore) and Inis Oírr (Inishere) off the west coast of Ireland.
This year it will be organized on February 21 and continue till February 24.
The Fr. Ted Festival which is popularly known as Ted Fest, is a celebration of the life of comedian Dermot Morgan and his 1990’s cult TV sitcom Father Ted created by Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews. The event sees large numbers of fans take to the islands, most dressed as characters from the show. The event involves taking part in many themed events associated with the comedy series including fancy dress, five-aside football (nuns against priests), toilet duck comedy awards, buckaroo speed dating, lovely girls contest and A Song For Europe.
There are all sorts of surreal and wacky events such as Nuns vs Priests volleyball, Ted’s Got Talent and a Lovely Girls Competition.
If you’re looking for a completely different type of festival and you have a sense of adventure then this one is for you.
