An Irish woman has designed this Father Ted t-shirt to raise funds for medical care

PAT MUSTARD IS back – but this time, he’s actually not up to mischief.

Dublin woman Denise Ryan is suffering from late stage Lyme disease, which she contracted from tick bites while living in Canada.

My immune system, organs, digestive and central nervous system are under constant attack. I’m completely debilitated and after countless doctors, specialists, and thousands upon thousands of euro spent seeking answers all over Ireland, the UK and Canada, I am left with only one treatment option.

For the past two years, Denise has been trying to raise €100,000 so she can get a year of intensive treatment at a clinic in Seattle.

So far, she’s raised over €46,000 - and she’s hoping this snazzy Father Ted t shirt will help her get over the line.

Designed by Denise with the help of a friend, the t shirt features Craggy Island’s womanising milkman, Pat Mustard.

As Denise told

I’m trying to get Pat Mustard to go from baby maker to life saver.

The t shirt costs €28.50 – if you want to purchase it, you can do so here.

Be careful though: Wearing this t shirt will make you so gorgeous, they’ll want to put you under arrest.
