Ecumenical Matters: Episode 10 - The Old Grey Whistle Theft



Donny Kingston, up and coming stand up on Belfast's comedy circuit, helps unravel the mystery of the stolen whistle and stave off complete societal breakdown on Craggy Island. It's just a whistle! 

Dougal's finds a cool new friend in Father Damo (played by Joe Rooney), and gets to show off his football tekkers. Ted tries to relax on a picnic site, but unfortunately he runs in to a couple of fupping baxters. Mrs Doyle is on night duty and Jack displays his ninja skills with a couple of bottles of Jacob's Creek Chardonnay 1991.

There's another score in our Meet Your Maker feature, so who is that shows up, Graham or Arthur? Larry Duff actually answers his phone! It's not good news though. The Blur/Oasis rivalry gets a sermon (remember Feile 95? What a line up!), as does Street Fighter 2; bad piercings and Belfast's murals and checkpoints.

Ecumenical Matters - The Father Ted Podcast

Father Ted is one of the most iconic shows in Irish TV history, or as James McAnespy put it while hosting the latest episode of Ecumenical Matters - The Father Ted Podcast, it is now an artefact of Irish culture.

In the weekly podcast, released every Sunday (just in time for Mass), James gathers a new guest or two from Northern Ireland's rich arts scene to do a full run down of each episode of the legendary show. Previous guests have been poet Colin Hassard (find his work here), games streamer Vincent Kettle (@flimosh on Beam.pro), vlogger Derm McGuigan (Youtube channel), improv artist Marcus Keeley (@MarcusKeeley) and many more.

There are nine episodes available, with more to follow each week, so check out the full set on SoundCloud, or subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, aCast, PodcastAddict or your favourite podcast platform.





In Episode 9 - Tentacles of Doom, London Comedy Writers members Olly Allsop (Soundcloud and Jordan Birch (@JordanBirch  attend the upgrading of the Holy Stone of Clonrickert to a Class 2 Relic. Hosting three bishops on the island is going to be the highlight of Mrs Doyle's career, but unfortunately she's lost her contact lenses. Dougal philosophises on the nature of Heaven and Hell and all that, while Ted has to bring Jack through a few elocution lessons ("Th-th-th-that...").
We also share our own Gary Lineker Ghost Stories, the mechanics of Buckaroo (The Sport of Kings), and Dougal's Bjork obsession. It's a Priest thing, you wouldn't understand.
