Star of Father Ted and a veteran of the Irish comedy scene, Ardal O’Hanlon is in 5th on Teeling tomorrow night, Friday, March 27.
Ardal may have shot to fame after playing the dim-witted Father Dougal Maguire in the classic sitcom, Father Ted, but before that Ardal and friends established Ireland’s first alternative comedy club – The Comedy Cellar, based in Dublin.
In 1994, he won the title of Comedy Newcomer of the Year and was soon spotted by the makers of Father Ted. He made the role of Dougal Maguire his own and kickstarted his television comedy career.
Tickets are €20 and you can get yours from www.5thonteeling.com, Liber Bookshop, any tickets.ie agent or simply on the door on the night. Show starts at 9pm.
Meanwhile, on Saturday night, one of Ireland’s hottest young acts, Ruggedwood make their full Sligo debut. They will be on stage at midnight and admission is free.
