A viral video clip has cued nostalgia for Father Ted fans as comedian Joe Rooney returns as Father Damo with some of his old pals.

Other beloved characters make cameos in the TikTok video, including Father Austin, Eoin McLove and the ‘boring priest’ Father Stone.

Last year, Joe Rooney told The Sunday World that the hit sitcom from the 1990s “is still the biggest influence on my professional life.”

Father Damo “was a one off character that stood out; a young priest who wore an earring, smoked, stole and told his superiors ‘you’re not the boss of me,” Rooney said.

"People still come up to me and quote him, asking ‘Who do you prefer, Oasis or Blur?’ I am Father Damo to most people and that’s fine by me.”

With half a million views on TikTok, the video has Father Ted fans reminiscing.

"Getting the band back together?” one hopeful follower commented.

There are no reboot plans for the iconic Irish sitcom that ended after just 25 episodes. Instead, Joe Rooney is happy to reprise his role at conventions for excited fans.
