They graced our screens late last year with their viral 'BatDad' video, and now, Kerry's most madcap family, the Flemings, were back on our screens once again as they appeared on the newly revamped Podge and Rodge show this week.

Video-maker Tadhg appeared on the show alongside the troublesome twins; his mother, Maureen; and his father, Derry, who in keeping with the spirit of his fame was dressed in a Batman costume.

The family was invited up to the show for the ceremonial switching on of the Ballydung Manor Christmas lights. 

To switch on the lights, Derry, who works in the Cara Credit Union branch in Tralee, had to hit a bat-shaped piñata with a stick until it broke. On the show, the family joked about making millions of euro off their BatDad fame while the twins gently ribbed Derry for the Batman costume he was wearing.

Another TV appearance off the list for this family from Ballymac!
