These Children's Lego Recreations Of Father Ted Are Exactly What We Need Right Now

As we all search for inspiration and creativity in the midst of the artistic expectation of a quarantine, you realise quickly you've been trying too hard. For true inspiration, two places will never steer you far wrong - the imagination and ingenuity of children, and Father Ted.

Brother and sister Charlie (11) and Rebecca McCarthy (9) from Leixlip have apparently discovered Father Ted during the lockdown and put it to very good use with their extra free time, creating an incredible display of Lego recreations of the show.

Family friend Colin Nolan posted the pictures on Twitter last night, and we must say, they're inspired. The kids have recreated 14 iconic scenes from Ireland's best ever television show and each one is instantly recognisable.

From Kicking Bishop Brennan Up The Arse to The Lovely Girls Competition to The All-Priests Five-A-Side Over-75s Indoor Challenge Football Match and taking in classic characters like Pat Mustard, Todd Unctious , John and Mary, and Father Stone, they've got the entire series just about covered.

In these drab and difficult times, sit back and enjoy some true Irish art.

Wonderful stuff. We look forward to the sequel or when they discover The Sunday Game.

The creations also got the seal of approval from Dermot Morgan's son Don.
