Father Ted was a comedy about three Irish priests living together in a house on Craggy Island. The three priests, Father Ted, Father Dougal and Father , are no saints. Father Ted has a gambling problem, Father Dougal is a simpleton who is not sure he even believes in God while father jack is an alcoholic who hates just about everyone. They are often joined by their housekeeper Mrs. Doyle who is quite demanding with her catchprhase "go on, ah go on, go on go on go on go on.....".

The boss of the three priests is Bishop Brennan, he has it in for the three priests who had been sent to Craggy Island as a punishment.

The final series, series 3, was delayed in being broadcast for a week due to the death of Dermot Morgan from a heart attack a few days after filming the final episode.
