Arguably the great television show to grace Irish television screens, Father Ted had many great sporting references. Here are our favourite ten from the show.

10. Father Dougal giving Jack the last rights

Nice shout-out to some of Italy's best footballers.

9. Father Stone gets struck by lightening while playing crazy golf

'Give it a real go. What's the worst that can happen?'



8. Father Dougal's Advent calender prediction

Ruud Gullit sitting on a shed!



7. Father Ted and Father Dougal discuss the ins and outs of Shoot magazine

What's it all about?

6. Our Lady appears on the 13th hole at Kilnettle golf course

One of the holiest shrines in the world ... Top 10 anyway.





5. Father Dougal's bedtime reading

Got to get my hands on this gem!

4. Father Dougal and Father Damo play football

Serious skill on show...

3. Father Dougal's Ireland jersey

Not really a 'moment' but still deserves its rightful place on this list.

Father Dougal's cheeky punt is brilliant.
