Episode 21 - Escape from Victory

Another Road Show! This time to Mexico. Well south of the (Ireland/UK) border in Letterkenny. Ted is embroiled in a high stakes bet with his hated rival Dick Byrne in the Annual All-Priests 5-a-Side Over 75 Indoor Football Challenge Match.

Episode 14 - Cigarettes and Alcohol and Rollerblading

Lifelong Ted fan Eamonn Turbett joins in the giving things up competition, or sorry, the sacrifice to Our Lord (Arnold, who's Arnold?). After Father Dick Byrne lays down the challenge, Ted volunteers himself, Dougal and Jack to give up their vices, while Mrs Doyle has a good miserable time on St Patrick's Hill.

Episode 11 - A Song for Europe

Composer and musician Marty Devine serenades us through Craggy Island's melodious tribute to Eurovision. Ted and Dougal go through some creative differences, but emerge with the classic My Lovely Horse (well, the lyrics at least). Jack's drinks cabinet has got a very expensive new addition and Mrs Doyle's brutally honest critiques would do well on the Judges panel of X Factor.

Episode 4 - Competition Time

The classic Henry Sellers ("I MADE THE BBC") episode, Competition Time.
Hopefully you'll laugh as much as the largely overshadowed character, Barty Dunne; we get the first appearance of Dick Byrne; how many times Mrs Doyle says 'Ah, go on!' (it's hard to keep count!); lepresy; Craggy Island Rehab Resort; Hans Zimmer (you'll hear why); Going for Gold; Stars in Their Eyes; Elvis Aaron Presley and lots more! Except the English Papers.
