Careful Now!

TedFest postponed to October 2021

Inis Mór AKA Craggy Island



“Everything subject to change without notice nor comeback whether due to acts of God or straightforward incompetence”


The annual TedFest on Inis Mór in the Aran Islands which becomes the legendary ‘Craggy Island’ for a weekend of high-jinx every February has now been moved to October 2021.  Highlights of of Tedfest include the annual Lovely Girls Competition, Ted’s Got Talent, The Celibate Olympics, Matchmaking with Nellie, Priests Dance Off, The Nuns & Neon Old Grey Whistle Test Rave, A Fistful of Mustard -The Shootout of Giant Tools, The Pan Asian Zen-Off, the Father Ted Prizeless Quiz, the Craggy Cup, Blind Date and lots more.  The music line-up is always a triumph at TedFest and Trad for Trocaire brings out the dancing priests and raises some money for a good cause that won’t just ‘rest in our account’


In a statement issued by TedFest, the Founder Peter Philips said “It has come to our attention that some sort of plague has broken out on the Mainland.  On the off chance that this is not Fake News© we are taking the precaution of delaying Tedfest next year to Thursday 14 to Sunday 17 October 2021. Tickets will be going on sale, as usual, in September”


Original cast members Fr Damo (Joe Rooney) and Eoin McLove (Patrick McDonell) are also firm favorites at the event!  Willie or no willie, Craggy Island’s most beloved singer always draws a crowd – probably about seventeen million!  Competition can be rife for the coveted Lovely Girls title and organisers have lovely girls practice their lovely talents, lovely laughs, cone walking and general loveliness at all times.


All activity takesplace at the Aran Islands hotel on Inis Mor which has the space to accommodate the Music Stages, the Craggy Craic Den and full extended line-up.  Copious cups of tea and sandwiches, a lot of red tank-tops, nuns on the run, priests on the pull, map-cap costumes and of course a bishop getting a kick up the arse – Tedfest is about as wild and wonderful as it gets! Fr Ted, Ireland’s best loved TV Show is celebrated and, of course, Craggy Island of Culture must surely take its place in the European Capital of Culture programme.
