Can you guess which popular TV series has knocked Father Ted off the top spot as Irish viewers' favourite?

Game of Thrones has knocked Father Ted off the top of the table as the nation’s favourite box set.

The medieval fantasy series has broken records and been crowned Ireland’s favourite box set ever.

Nearly 50 per cent of people voted Game of Thrones as their number one box set, with our beloved Father Ted coming in second place.

It seems that our telly addiction has become even more important than a pint in the pub – more people said they would rather sit in and watch a box set than head down to the local.

Surprisingly, more than a quarter of people would rather lose sleep and stay up all night than miss out on a talked-about box set.

So next time your co-worker is nodding off at the desk, the “late night” they’re talking about might not have to do with an actual night out.

A shared love of a particular box set has even been the reason seven per cent of respondents fell in love with their partners.

Staying in to watch television has never sounded so good!
