WATCH: Hilarious Father Ted scene is recreated by Mayo priest for charity

Cathal Austin

Mayo priest and recent participant on RTE's Operation Transformation Fr John Kenny has channelled his inner Ted Crilly to promote a charity event.

Fr John Kenny has recreated an iconic scene from the beloved Father Ted series to promote the 'Pedal, Paddle, Pilgrimage and Party' event for suicide prevention charity Pieta House.


The Mayo priest is no stranger to Social Media and is partial to taking selfies with members of his congregation and is a well known figure beyond Mayo's borders thanks to his quirky online presence.


With a little help from some of his parishioners - along with some solid acting skills of his own - he has done a great job of bringing some fun into promoting a very worthwhile cause.


Pedal, Paddle, Pilgrimage and Party for Pieta House takes place on May 21. For further information see the event Facebook page.
