RTE has reported that the inaugural Father Ted festival is to take place next month. That's not all - two Aran Islands are feuding over where it's to take place. It is to take place on Inis Mor, but a native of Inis Oirr said; "It's unfair that Inis Mor is cashing in on Father Ted when obviously we have closer links with the show. Fans and tourists would have come here in the past just to view the Plassey shipwreck (which appears in the opening credits of the sitcom). Inis Mor is trying to pull a fast one to be honest and we're not very impressed." The festival is to be called Friends of Father Ted and will showcase a number of events including: "Father Jack Cocktail Evening, the Father Dougal Breakfast Movie Charades, the Lovely Girls Contest and Charity Auction, A Song for Europe, Toilet Duck Comedy Awards, Crazy Golf, Hide A Nun and Seek, Ludo Aerobics, Buckeroo Speed Dating and a Ferrero Rocher Quiz Night. Fancy dress five-aside football will also pit priests against nuns on the island."
