TEDFEST organisers have confirmed it will be returning to the Aran Islands at the beginning of March.

Inis Mór will become Craggy Island from Thursday March 3rd to Sunday March 6th for TedFest 2022 with the official itinerary yet to be announced. Highlights will include the annual Lovely Girls Competition, Ted’s Got Talent, Craggy Island’s fittest family, Matchmaking with Nellie, Priests Dance Off, The Pan Asian Zen-Off, the Father Ted Prizeless Quiz, the Craggy Cup and Blind Date.

Original cast members Fr Damo (Joe Rooney) and Eoin McLove (Patrick McDonell) will be heading to the Aran Islands for TedFest.

Copious cups of tea and sandwiches, a lot of red tank-tops, nuns on the run, priests on the pull, map-cap costumes and of course a bishop getting a kick up the are promised. Interestingly, Tedfest was the last great festival that went ahead in 2020 before lockdown and will be among the first festivals to take place post lockdown.

Organisers are encouraging the seventeen million repentant brethren who have never managed to tick TedFest off their bucket list to not miss out again as tickets are going fast and are limited to the amount of accommodation available on the island.

Father Ted which aired from 1995 to 1998 was famously filmed in North Clare. The parochial house is McCormack’s at Glenquin on the Boston Rd from Kilnaboy, primary locations for the comedy included Corofin, Ennis, Kilnaboy, Kilfenora and Ennistymon.
