Series 3, Episode 7 - Night Of The Nearly Dead
Despite Ted's best literary efforts, Mrs Doyle wins a poem writing contest. Her reward is the chance to meet her singing idol, the legendary Mr Eoin McLove.
News spreads like wildfire that the one and only Eoin McLove will be gracing the island with his magnificent self. This sends the Craggy Island tea-making, cake-loving womenfolk of a certain age into a wild frenzy.
A giant zombie-like horde of old ladies trap their idol and the priests in the parochial house. They cut the phone lines and lay in wait for their hero to appear.
Can Father Ted save the day? It seems unlikely...
