Personal Quote:

I was the bare arse on the bonnet of Fr Ted's car after he had been on the caravan holiday with Dougal and Fr Jack. People at airports still come up to me saying, 'You're the naked guy from Father Ted'. [referring to playing Mr. Gleason in 1996 Father Ted episode 'Hell'.] See more »
