Accident-prone Father Ted Crilly, along with stupid young Father Dougal and cantankerous, drunken retired priest Father Jack, lives on Craggy Island, being looked after by house-keeper Mrs Doyle. Ted hears a TV crew is coming to interview priests with remote parishes but does not want the others involved so pretends he is the island's sole priest, sending Dougal and Jack to the funfair. With the interview about to start Ted finds himself at the fair and whisked into the air on one of its rides, leaving Dougal, whom the interviewer assumes to be Ted, to spout a load of rubbish into the microphone.
