Quiz: A very, very hard quiz about Father Ted's obscure supporting characters

It’s like two completely different sheep.

THE NOW ANNUAL tradition of celebrating all things Father Ted is back this week.

Tedfest takes place from 20-23 February on Inis Mór in the Aran Islands and features such festivities as a Lovely Girls Competition, a Priests Dance Off and the Pan Asian Zen-Off.

With that in mind, we thought we’d quiz you on some of the minor characters who showed their faces on Father Ted over its three-season run.

Just a word of warning. It’s a tough one. Careful now.
